Football - Midfield boost for Rovers

Midfield pair Martin Woods and Dave Syers are set to return to Doncaster's team to face Oldham.

The duo were rated 50/50 to face MK Dons on Saturday but have had extra time to recover from injury after the game was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Woods had been struggling with a thigh injury, while Syers had missed three games with an ankle problem, but both are set to come back in.

Woods' return puts Kyle Bennett's place in jeopardy, with the former Wolves trainee struggling to recapture his early-season form.

Leading scorer Dave Cotterill is likely to have overcome his stomach bug in time for the game at Boundary Park.

Rovers are without a win in four games.
