We return to league action tomorrow knowing a win will take us back into the top two with a game in hand.
Quotes will appear here later.
Doncaster Team News:
Chris Neal has been signed from Port Vale on emergency loan to cover for injured Thorsten Stuckmann.
Defender Andy Butler (groin), winger Cameron Stewart (back), midfielder Harry Middleton and striker Nathan Tyson (both hamstring) are all likely to remain sidelined.
On-loan Stoke teenager Eddy Lecygne is hoping to feature again in midfield as Doncaster chase their first win in five games in all competitions.
Player to watch: Andy WIlliams
Williams has scored 14 goals so far this season and will cause problems all night tomorrow – leave him unmarked at your peril!
Walsall Team News:
Midfielder Bryn Morris is available to make his Walsall debut after his loan from Middlesbrough.
The 19-year-old joined last week but was cup-tied for the Saddlers’ 4-0 FA Cup defeat at Reading on Saturday.
Walsall are expected to keep striker Tom Bradshaw and Romaine Sawyers beyond the transfer deadline and the pair are likely to spearhead the attack.
Isaiah Osbourne is continuing his recovery from a long-term knee injury he suffered in the summer.

Super Tom scored a superb double against Doncaster earlier this season and will be hoping to score a few more tomorrow (should he stay) to fire the Saddlers into the promotion places.
