Doncaster Rovers team news

12 February 2013

Luke Chadwick will start for the first time since mid-December as manager Karl Robinson makes two changes to his starting XI.

Chadwick, who made his return from a knee injury in last weekend’s defeat to Oldham Athletic, will replace Chris Lines in the side and return to the ‘number 10’ position that he made his own during the first half of the season. Therefore, Ryan Harley will move into the centre of midfield, partnering Darren Potter in Lines’ absence.

The Dons’ only other change comes in the shape of Izale McLeod who will lead the line up top in place of Alan Smith. The 28-year-old is still in search of his first goal since re-joining the Club in early January.

Elsewhere the team remains unchanged with MacKenzie continuing at the back alongside Shaun Williams and Saturday’s goalscorer Daniel Powell once again occupying the right-wing position.

On the bench, duo Tom Flanagan and George Baldock are awaiting their first appearances in Dons shirts this season while Mathias Kouo-Doumbe and Adam Chicksen will provide cover as replacements.

Doncaster Rovers: Woods, Quinn, Spurr, McCombe, Jones (c), Woods, Griffin, Cotterill, Coppinger, Husband, Paynter.
