Doncaster are in a serious fight to retain their status at this level of football, having only picked up 25 points from their 34 league matches this season, which has left them in 23rd spot in the table.
Saturday’s 3-1 home loss to Sheffield Wednesday was their 23rd league defeat of the campaign and left them six points from the safety of 20th, while they have played two games more than AFC Wimbledon, who are the team directly above the relegation zone in League One.
Doncaster actually took the lead against Sheffield Wednesday, breaking the deadlock late in the first period through Daniel Gardner, but the visitors netted three times in the final 20 minutes to secure all three points, preventing the strugglers from securing back-to-back wins, having beaten Lincoln City on February 15.
The Reds, who finished 14th in League One last term, have two huge league games against Accrington and AFC Wimbledon to end the month, and victories in both would certainly give them a fighting chance.
Gary McSheffrey‘s side have the worst home record in the league this season, though, picking up just 15 points from 17 matches, suffering 10 defeats in the process.
Doncaster boss McSheffrey introduced Mipo Odubeko into his starting XI for the clash with Sheffield Wednesday, and it would not be a surprise to see the forward retain his spot in the side here.
There will have to be a change in the middle of the park, though, as Thomas Rowe was forced off through injury in the 23rd minute of Saturday’s contest, so Josh Martin could come into the XI.
The strugglers are again likely to line up in a 3-5-2 formation, with Odubeko being joined in the final third of the field by Reo Griffiths.
As for Accrington, Ross Sykes will be available to return after serving a suspension, but Yeboah Amankwah could again be absent through injury.
Harvey Rodgers, Seamus Conneely and Jay Rich-Baghuelou all came into the side against Cambridge, but the latter will drop out to allow Sykes to return to the defence.
Head coach Coleman could decide to keep faith with a back three for the trip to Doncaster, with Colby Bishop and Sean McConville starting as the front two for the visitors.
