Mathieu Baudry has been pencilled in for return to training on Monday as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring problem.
The centre-back suffered the injury early in last month’s 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe United.
Rovers boss Darren Ferguson said: “Baudry will be training on Monday. He won’t be available for the Walsall game but will be for the Fleetwood game, which is when we had pencilled him in for anyway.”
The defender came off early into the match at Glanford Park - something Ferguson feels may have helped ensure a speedy recovery.
He added: “He let us know straight away in the match, meaning he didn’t keep on playing with it which would have made it worse.”
Tickets for Rovers’ home game with Charlton Athletic on Saturday February 10 are still available. They can be purchased via the Club Doncaster Box Office, either by visiting instore, calling on 01302 762576, or going online at tickets.clubdoncaster.co.uk.
