Yeovil forward James Hayter could make his first appearance against his old club since signing from Doncaster during the summer.
Captain Jamie McAlliste (calf) and on-Loan Chelsea midfielder Rohan Ince could also feature after recovering from a shin problem, but Gavin Williams is set to miss out for Gary Johnson's side due to a calf problem.
"I don’t mind being like a dad. Sometimes your dad will praise you, he wants you to do well and I want them to do well but sometimes a dad has to smack them and make sure they grow up right," said Johnson.
“That’s what I’ve had to do. On occasions I don’t apologise for picking out certain times in the game when I thought we were lax and I thought we were lax for the last 20 minutes.
“I thought for 70 minutes our football club looked magnificent. I wanted to keep that tempo going throughout the game but we didn’t.
Doncaster manager Dean Saunders hopes Chris Brown, the club's top goalscorer with three goals, will recover from a hip injury to take his place in the side.
"I’m expecting a tough game,” said Saunders. "They are a strong side and very mobile and they’ve not lost a game in the league yet.
“But we’ve got everything to match them. I’ve got a group of players who are confident and physically we are fine which we weren’t last year. This season we’ve got strong men who want to win.
“It’s a long way down there and I think that we are going to leave a bit earlier today after training so that we get past Birmingham and Bristol before the rush hour traffic so that we are not on the bus any longer than we need to be.”
Saunders hopes to add to his squad before the transfer window closes with Preston forward Ian Hume reported to be in talks with the club.
