The Royals had previously won four games in five before the two setbacks against Barnsley and Burnley, but Nigel Adkins's side still remain just seven points off top of the table.
Adkins could hand a recall to striker Nick Blackman, despite the striker netting just once since the second week of the season.
Doncaster will be without Manchester United frontman Federico Macheda, after the striker was forced to return to his parent club due to injury.
