Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray anticipates being without Darragh Lenihan again for Doncaster’s visit to Ewood Park.
The defender sustained a foot injury during the season opener against Southend and Mowbray admitted he will “probably” sit out again as he did at Coventry in midweek.
Bradley Dack (hamstring) returned to training on Thursday and Craig Conway (hamstring) is also ready to make his season bow after missing four pre-season games and the opening two fixtures.
Mowbray could make other changes from the XI he deployed against the Sky Blues, with Peter Whittingham and Danny Graham hoping to be restored to the line-up.
Doncaster will be boosted by the expected return of Andy Williams, Liam Mandeville, James Coppinger and Matty Blair.
Striker Williams (hamstring) has missed the opening two games of the season, while Blair missed the Carabao Cup win at Bradford due to personal reasons and Coppinger (dead-leg) and Mandeville (calf) also sat it out.
Summer signing Issam Ben Khemis is hoping to make his first appearance for the club after they received international clearance.
Alex Kiwomya’s debut has been delayed by at least two months due to a back-related calf injury and goalkeeper Ross Etheridge is recovering from a broken ankle.
