Loan star Gary McSheffrey looks set to miss Doncaster Rovers' final two games of the season with a knee injury.

The 33-year-old forward limped out of yesterday's game with Coventry City shortly after setting up the opening goal for Tommy Rowe.

"He's jarred his knee. I think that'll be him out for the season," said Rovers boss Darren Ferguson afterwards.

"We don't know yet. He'll go back to Scunny for a scan. He just joked to me there that they [Scunthorpe] are two points off the play-offs and he'll be fit for the play-offs!

"He's been excellent for us; seven games, six assists, one goal. He's got a real bit of quality at that end of the pitch, which we needed."

McSheffrey was replaced by Nathan Tyson, who has not started a game since the 4-1 defeat to Colchester on Easter Friday.

Ferguson said: "He did well when he came on, Tys. He's been champing at the bit.

"I was really pleased him, it was a great assist for the goal for Williams.

"We know what Tys can bring us. He's fresh, he's not played for a while, which might be important."
