Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll has insisted that he will not rush back defender Byron Webster as he recovers from a broken foot.

The 23-year-old has been out of action since January firstly with an elbow injury and then a fractured metatarsal and unable to play since.

He was hoping for a quick return in time to replace fellow defender Wayne Thomas, who has succumbed to a knee injury for Rovers.

However, O'Driscoll was cautious over bringing Webster back, claiming that he needed more time to recover before he could play again.

"He's found it difficult just coming back into training. You can do all of the work you want to in the gym, but it's difficult to come back into it," O'Driscoll said.

"Rather than pushing him, he's having one day on and one day off and if he gets no reaction, then we will push him on as quick as we can.

"He's got this one awkward spot which we're trying to manage. We don't want to go down the road of having another operation to solve it."
