It appears that Steve Bruce may be altering the formation to a back four unless Isaac Hayden is playing at center-back. Allan Saint-Maximin gets a start after coming on in the second half at York City.
Kelland Watts only makes the bench after his promising display on Sunday. However, there are four youngsters amongst the substitutes in Oisín McEntee, Tom Allan, Jack Young, and Matthew Bondswell. Here is an introduction to four of the youngsters on the bench tonight provided on nufc.co.uk.
Dan Langley is back in goal with Bruce missing four first-team goalkeepers. Young Max Thompson is again on the bench.
Joelinton, who came off early last weekend with a thigh problem, is not risked tonight. Yoshinori Muto (illness), Javier Manquillo (undisclosed), and Matt Ritchie (slight knock) are also missing with Jonjo Shelvey still out with a calf problem.
Here is who Doncaster manager Richie Wellens has selected for the hosts.
