Crawford sidelined for Doncaster

Doncaster will be without midfielder Ali Crawford for their League One clash with Wycombe at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The summer signing from Hamilton suffered medial knee ligament damage on his debut against Southend last weekend.

It was initially feared Crawford, who missed a big chunk of last season with knee problems, would be out for four months. Boss Grant McCann is optimistic it will not be that long but the 27-year-old will still be sidelined for a significant period.

Crawford’s misfortune should see either Matty Blair or on-loan Liverpool teenager Herbie Kane given a spot in the starting line-up.

Defender Jason McCarthy could make a second Wycombe debut after signing in a permanent deal from Barnsley.

The 22-year-old was voted the supporters’ player of the year after a successful season on loan at Adams Park from Southampton in 2015-16.

Dominic Gape could make his first appearance of the season after missing the draw with Blackpool because of a back problem but Michael Harriman is suspended following his late red card last weekend.

Scott Kashket, Nathan Tyson and Darius Charles are continuing to have their respective injuries assessed.
