England's lower leagues get the midweek spotlight, as Frank Simek and Carlisle united look to turn their season around against Doncaster Rovers.

Carlisle United - Doncaster Rovers

Frank Simek and Carlisle United look to avenge this weekend's loss with a victory over Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday.

Simek, a regular starter in the Cumbrians' back line, is expected to feature once again this midweek.

Carlisle lost to Leyton Orient in a 4-1 pummeling at home which extended the Blues' woes, as they have only won once in their last eight league games, leaving the club just three points above the relegation zone.

Doncaster is coming off a win over Portsmouth this weekend, and although they lost their prior two games before Saturday's, they find themselves just one point from a playoff position.

Danny Livesey, Danny Cadamarteri, and Paul Thirlwell are injury doubts for Carlisle, while Matty Robson could return from a back injury for the Cumbrians.

Doncaster's Paul Quinn missed the Portsmouth game and is likely to be once again on Tuesday.


Mike Grella hopes to see action in Scunthorpe United's game against Bury.

Robbie Rogers and Stevenage take the road to play AFC Bounremouth.

Robbie Findley is unlikely to feature in Gillingham's match against Exeter City

John Paul Pittman could see time off the bench in Oxford United's game against Barnet.
