Football - Forrester in fitness race

Injury may force Harry Forrester to wait for his Doncaster debut with the midfielder a doubt ahead of Rovers' opening game of the season against Blackpool at the Keepmoat Stadium.

PA Sport Report

Forrester is nursing a knock and is not the only summer arrival with an injury, with former Real Madrid midfielder Marc De Val Fernandez set to miss the first two months of the campaign with a torn medial ligament.

However, fellow new signings Dean Furman, Mark Duffy, Ross Turnbull and Bongani Khumalo are available and in contention to make their first appearances for last season's League One champions.

Jamie McCombe finished the last campaign with a stress fracture of the back and the defender is another player who is set to miss the first two months of this term.
