Doncaster Rovers vs Cardiff City (Team News)

Cardiff City are sweating on the fitness of goalkeeper Tom Heaton who suffered a recurrence of his groin problem after returning against Derby County. He could be replaced by loanee Stephen Bywater or Jason Brown.

The Bluebirds are certainly without defender Mark Hudson (knee) meaning Kevin McNaughton will continue in the centre, while Michael Chopra's groin strain means Bellamy will again partner Bothroyd in attack.

Doncaster were boosted this week with James Chambers (hamstring) and James O'Connor (foot) both returning to contention, while all the signs are that influential midfielder Brian Stock is also fit despite limping off with an ankle problem last time out.

Lively striker Billy Sharp will be missing after undergoing surgery while Martin Woods is also kept out with a groin injury.

Adam Lockwood and Paul Keegan are long term injury worries for Rovers.
