Doncaster V Swindon at Keepmoat Stadium - Match Preview.
As you were for Rovers
Doncaster manager Brian Flynn has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Monday's crucial clash with Swindon.
Midfielder Dean Furman (facial injury) was a second-half substitute during Friday's 1-0 defeat to Coventry and is in contention to make his first start for the club.
Midfielders Martin Woods (calf), Paul Keegan (thigh) and David Syers (ankle) will all miss out once again, while Lee Fowler has joined Burton on loan until the end of the season.
Flynn is looking for a return to winning ways after Friday's defeat.
He told the club's official website: "We need to claim three points from every game and then nobody can touch us, that's our aim.
"Our aim was also to win at Coventry but it didn't happen, our aim now is to finish the job off properly - we will do our utmost to put on a performance and get the results for the supporters."
Swindon right-back Nathan Thompson is set to miss their televised promotion showdown with an ankle injury.
The 22-year-old was forced off early in the second half of the 1-1 draw with Oldham on Friday and looks like he missing out on the trip to face the npower League One leaders.
But manager Kevin MacDonald said the club's medical staff will assess the injury, picked up in a tackle, in the build up to the lunchtime kick-off.
If Thompson misses out then Tottenham loanee Nathan Byrne could get the nod for his first start since making the move from White Hart Lane last week.
Midfielder Tommy Miller missed Friday's game with the Latics with an injury he had been playing with in the Robins' previous matches. He will also be assessed ahead of the match.
Fourth-placed Swindon head to Doncaster knowing victory would lift them to within one point of Brian Flynn's men.
