Doncaster v Blackpool preview: Carabao Cup second-round clash
Last Updated: 27/08/18 8:50pm
Doncaster will be forced into a change in goal for their Carabao Cup tie with Blackpool after Marko Marosi's sending-off against Portsmouth.
Midfielder Ben Whiteman took the gloves for the closing stages on Saturday but Ian Lawlor is likely to serve as a more conventional deputy on Tuesday evening.
On-loan Peterborough midfielder Jermaine Anderson will be hoping for a debut after he was an unused substitute against Pompey.
Tommy Rowe and Alex Kiwomya returned from injury from the bench in that game and will hope for starting places if manager Grant McCann opts to rotate his squad.
The status of defender Curtis Tilt remains the main talking point for Blackpool.
Tilt was left out of Saturday's game against Accrington amid ongoing interest from Championship side Ipswich ahead of Friday's loan deadline.
Donervon Daniels and Joe Bunney missed that game with injuries while Liam Feeney made his debut from the bench after signing from Blackburn and will hope for a first start.
The Seasiders' busy fixture schedule means interim manager Terry McPhillips expects to remain in charge for both the cup tie and Saturday's League One clash with Walsall.
