Injury ravaged Rovers battle on

SEAN O’Driscoll was planning a head count today as the casualty list at the Keepmoat entered double figures.

Veteran keeper Neil Sullivan missed his first match through injury since joining the club as Rovers returned to winning ways with a gritty 1-0 victory at home to Burnley on Tuesday night.

With centre backs Matt Kilgallon and Adam Lockwood also ruled out it took the tally of walking wounded to ten and then striker James Hayter had to come off at half time with an Achilles injury.

To add to O’Driscoll’s woes James Coppinger was black and blue at the end of the game and the Doncaster boss described the mercurial winger’s ankle as looking as if it had been attacked by a “meat cleaver”!
