Rovers had been due to welcome the Shrews to the Keepmoat but have elected to postpone the game after receiving the three calls which trigger the option.

Tyreece John-Jules has been called up for England U20 duty, goalkeeper Josef Bursik will join up with England U21s and Danny Amos will head away with Northern Ireland U21s.

With Jason Lokilo and Rayhaan Tulloch both sidelined through hamstring injuries, Rovers would be low on options for Saturday’s game and have decided therefore to reschedule.
