Doncaster Rovers v Palace

Keepmoat Stadium, Saturday 3.00pm



Team news

Palace will be missing the suspended Victor Moses after his red card against Derby last weekend and Claude Davis serves his ban for elbowing Cardiff's Roger Johnson in the throat.

Shaun Derry (shoulder) Sean Scannell (hernia) are injured so fellow midfielder James Comley could step in.

Neil Danns has overcome his groin injury and Nick Carle (hip) is also available, but John Oster still has neck trouble.

Doncaster's Mark Wilson (calf) and Paul Heffernan (cartilage) won't play and defender Matt Mills (groin) is doubtful.


Sean O'Driscoll

"They are going to be competitive; all Neil Warnock's sides are. He's got the same problem as me and a few other managers in that does he risk a player whose injury you can make worse by playing him?

"I would imagine that a lot of his talented youngsters will be given a game. We are both second-guessing each other on what sort of teams we put out - but it will be competitive.

"It is our last game at the Keepmoat and we've not played particularly well of late - especially the Preston game - so it would be nice to finish the season giving the supporters, who have stuck with us all through the season, something to smile about."
