Keegan set to start

PAUL Keegan is likely to make his first start for Rovers in tonight's big derby clash with Barnsley.

The Irish midfielder will come into the side if Mark Wilson fails to shake off an ankle injury he picked up in the closing stages of Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Ipswich.

Rovers are still without midfielders Simon Gillett, Brian Stock and Martin Woods as they bid to end a three-game losing run at the Keepmoat Stadium (7.45pm).

Former Doncaster loan star Jason Shackell will return from suspension for the Tykes, along with central defensive partner Stephen Foster.
