Dons supremo Carl Hall has revealed some light at the end of the tunnel as far as the Dons’ early season injuries are concerned.

Gary Thornton’s men welcome unbeaten Barrow Raiders to the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday (3pm) - and look set to be boosted numbers-wise.

Hall said: “We’ve got a few boys back. Things are starting to look up.

“We signed Brad Nicholson this week and Jordan Howden’s trained okay for a couple of weeks.

“Brad Foster could also be back in the mix again.

“Two weeks ago we were busted and down and out, but now Gary [Thornton] has got a few selection headaches, so that’s great.”

Barrow sit third in the early League One standings, with Doncaster in sixth.

“It’ll be one hell of a game,” said Hall.

“It’ll be a tough game for us, they’re going well in the league at the moment and they’re a big, experienced side, but it’s one we’re looking forward to.

“We always said we will be competitive this year so we need to relish these types of games.”

n Sunday’s game is the annual Liam Maughan Memorial Game.

Doncaster soldier Liam was killed while on service for the 3rd Battalion The Rifles (3 RIFLES) in Afghanistan in 2010.
