Hume in Rovers return Iain Hume will come back into the Doncaster squad for their top-of-the-table clash against South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Hume, who recently extended his loan from Preston until the end of the season, was ineligible against his parent club on Saturday.
The Canada international striker may struggle to get straight back into the starting line-up after Rovers won 3-0 at Deepdale.
Manager Dean Saunders is hoping to have James Coppinger available after recalling the midfielder from his loan spell at Nottingham Forest on Friday.
The 31-year-old made only six appearances in just under four months for the npower Championship club and his inclusion against the Blades is subject to Football League approval.
Midfielder Martin Woods is still nursing a thigh injury and will remain on the sidelines for another week.
Blades defender Tony McMahon returns to contention following suspension.
McMahon sat out Saturday's shock home defeat to bottom club Hartlepool due to a one-game ban after reaching five yellow cards, but could return to the starting line-up.
Darryl Westlake and Marcus Williams were recalled to the back four on Saturday in place of McMahon and Neill Collins, who will be out for two months after suffering a triple fracture to his cheekbone in the Boxing Day win over Scunthorpe.
Striker Shaun Miller will be sidelined for the season after sustaining cruciate knee ligament damage in the same match and manager Danny Wilson must decide whether to retain John Cofie up front alongside Nick Blackman or recall veteran Richard Cresswell to his starting line-up.
Doncaster vs Sheff Utd
Last modified 18:10 01/01/13
Rovers let it slip Doncaster threw away a two-goal lead as Sheffield United battled back to earn a 2-2 draw and snatch a point they barely deserved.
The Blades looked threatening at the start and home goalkeeper Gary Woods did well to save an 11th-minute free-kick from defender Tony McMahon before Doncaster took charge.
Rovers striker Billy Paynter gave them the lead from the penalty spot in the 18th minute when he slammed the ball home after visiting goalkeeper George Long had brought down David Syers.
The game was one-sided for long periods after that with Doncaster defenders Jamie McCombe and Rob Jones going close before striker Iain Hume hit the post early in the second half.
Syers made it 2-0 in the 63rd minute with a close-range header from winger David Cotterill's free-kick on the left.
The Blades had been disappointing until then, but Nick Blackman gave them a lifeline they hardly deserved when he scored from the penalty spot in the 80th minute after Andy Griffin had brought down Blades defender Joe Ironside.
Rovers finished with 10 men after Paynter was sent off for a foul on McMahon off the ball in the 87th minute and United cashed in with a last-gasp equaliser when Dave Kitson fired home in a crowded penalty box after visiting defender Matthew Hill had hit the post.
