Beye set for Rovers return

Doncaster will welcome back defender Habib Beye for the visit of Peterborough.

Beye received a straight red card during last month's defeat at Bristol City, but is set to resume his position at the heart of the Rovers defence after serving a three-match ban.

Mamadou Bagayoko is poised to start in attack having replaced hamstring injury victim Habib Bamogo to net a brace in last weekend's 3-2 defeat against Leeds.

Left-back Tommy Spurr is expected to be fit despite suffering a nasty clash of heads with Robbie Rogers in the same match, while forward Kyle Bennett should return to the substitutes' bench in Bamago's absence.

On-loan Tottenham goalkeeper David Button will play the last game of his loan spell as veteran keeper Neil Sullivan has resumed handling work in training but is not yet fully fit following thumb surgery.

Martin Woods is rated as 50/50 as he looks to shake off a knee problem and fellow midfielder James Coppinger is targeting next week's clash with Brighton as a potential comeback date from his broken cheekbone.
