Doncaster Rovers have recalled midfielder James Coppinger from his loan spell with npower Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Subject to league approval, Coppinger will be available for Rovers' meeting with Sheffield United on New Year's Day.

The 31-year-old failed to make an impact at the City Ground after linking up with former Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll.

But following O'Driscoll's departure on Wednesday, Coppinger will return to the Keepmoat to bolster their promotion push.
