Preview: Doncaster Rovers vs. Bournemouth

Sports Mole previews the Championship match between Doncaster Rovers and Bournemouth.

Doncaster Rovers will be eager to channel the frustration of last weekend's abandonment against Charlton Athletic into a winning display against Bournemouth.

Rovers were 3-1 ahead against Charlton when the match was brought to an abrupt halt due to a waterlogged pitch, but manager Paul Dickov would have been encouraged by his team's display at The Valley.

Paul Keegan was given a red card during that game, but he served his one-match ban during midweek.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has seen his side concede seven goals during the past week, and that could lead to changes to his selection for their match at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Striker Wes Thomas could be included after starting on the bench against Huddersfield Town.
