The boss has no new injury concerns ahead of the trip to Yorkshire, with Chris Beardsley completing 80 minutes against the Glovers in the 3-2 win.

Manager Graham Westley will be without the services of right back Keith Keane following his fifth yellow card of the season against Yeovil Town at the weekend.
Team News

Doncaster, with former PNE employees Chris Brown and Jamie McCombe amongst their ranks, are also in optimistic mood following their 2-0 win at Leyton Orient.

The Lilywhites fought back from 1-0 down to claim victory with the team now on 14 points and just four points behind second placed Notts County.

Graham Westley’s men, looking for their second win on the road this season, head into the game off the back of a spirited 3-2 win over Yeovil Town at Deepdale last weekend.

It will mark North End’s first game against one of the three teams who dropped down from the Championship last season and with both sides locked together in ninth and tenth, it is sure to be a close encounter.

Preston North End will make their first trip to the Keepmoat Stadium in 18 months on Tuesday night with a tricky away trip to Doncaster Rovers.
