Brighton (9) v Doncaster (19)

Brighton could be without Keith Andrews and Jake Forster-Caskey due to hamstring problems but fellow midfielder Rohan Ince is in line to return after a foot injury.

Winger Will Buckley is close to fitness following his hamstring injury but might not be risked just yet.

Craig Mackail-Smith is also on the comeback trail after 11 months out following a ruptured Achilles and could be back in action later this month, but fellow striker Will Hoskins remains sidelined with a long-term knee injury.

Doncaster will be without the suspended Richie Wellens after he received his 10th yellow card of the season during the goalless home draw with Middlesbrough last weekend.

Either Marc De Val Fernandez or Dean Furman will replace the Rovers captain. Fellow midfielder Paul Keegan (thigh) is an injury concern.

Scans have showed no tear and the Irishman will be assessed on Friday.
