Doncaster Rovers v Palace

Keepmoat Stadium, Saturday 3.00pm



Team news

Crystal Palace players Stern John, Lee Hills and Kieron Cadagan are available for selection after missing the midweek FA Cup defeat at Aston Villa due to being cup tied. Paddy McCarthy is still a way off fitness after his shoulder operation.

Doncaster Rovers skipper Brian Stock is out due to a back problem. Midfielder Martin Woods won't feature beacuse of a groin injury and defender Shelton Martis has a hamstring strain so also misses out.


John Oster

"We played really well when we beat them at Selhurst Park and we were good value for our first away win of the season. I was obviously going back there for the first time since I left, so it was a good day all round.

"They were going quite well before they had the ten points docked. If you stick the points back on they'd still be in the top half of the table and would just be above us.

"It has been hard on the players and the fans because they have had a half-decent season and now they find themselves in the bottom three and in a relegation battle.

"There is obviously talk of their manager leaving and that is something that they don't need at this moment in time. They need continuity and they don't need upheaval on the management side of things if they are to get out of the mess that they are in."
