YOUNGSTERS Bradley Grayson and James Husband are in Rovers’ injury hit squad for tonight’s game at Norwich - which definitely goes ahead.

Chairman John Ryan asked the Football Association for the match to be postponed yesterday.

Doncaster are currently without 14 senior players and could only name four substitutes for Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Swansea.

Rovers would risk a hefty fine or a points deduction were they not to fulfil tonight’s Carrow Road clash (7.45pm).

The FA left the decision to Doncaster whether to play - and Rovers have decided to soldier on despite their injury woes.

James Coppinger, injured during Saturday’s warm-up, joins Billy Sharp, James Hayter, Steve Brooker, Martin Woods, Brian Stock, Ryan Mason, Simon Gillett, Ryan Burge, Shelton Martis, Adam Lockwood, James O’Connor, Mustapha Dumbuya and James Chambers on the treatment table.

Striker Grayson and defender Husband were on the coach that travelled to East Anglia for tonight’s Championship clash.

Loan duo Jason Euell and Franck Moussa will again start, while Matt Kilgallon could earn a recall to the starting eleven.
