Fleetwood Town head coach Joey Barton has named his matchday squad for today's Sky Bet League One fixture against Doncaster Rovers.

Lewis Gibson arrived on Deadline Day from Everton on loan deal until the end of the season, and makes his first Town start along side Harry Souttar in the heart of the back line.

There are just two changes to the side which were held to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday night against Coventry City. Josh Morris come into the eleven and replaced Paddy Madden, whilst Gibson comes in for Kyle Dempsey. Alex Cairns is between the sticks once again after a fine display last time out.

Doncaster arrive at Highbury Stadium in 9th position in the league table, and are three games unbeaten on the road. Darren Moore is expected to give Fejri Okenbirhie a debut this afternoon, who joined the club earlier this week from Shrewsbury Town for an undisclosed fee.

Here is how Fleetwood will lineup against Doncaster:

Town XI: Cairns (GK), Coyle, Souttar, Gibson, Andrew, Sowerby, Whelan, Connolly, Morris, Burns, Evans (C) 

The Bench: Crellin (GK), Coutts, Madden, Baggley, Saunders, Hill, Garner.
