Paul Tierney and Darren Holloway could return to City's ranks at Doncaster tonight.

Colin Todd has promised changes and both full backs are in the squad after coming back from injury.

Holloway has not played for two months while Tierney has been sidelined since limping off at Sheffield Wednesday on February 12.

The on-loan Manchester United left back is with City until the end of the season - and Todd has hinted that he may push to extend that.

City are expected to land Marc Bridge-Wilkinson, and Tierney could be another possibility for the rebuilding plans if he impresses during the run-in.

Todd said: "He's got pace and good strength and was super in the first half against Wednesday before the injury. But I haven't seen enough of him playing yet.

"We've got eight games left and we'll see how he gets on."

Peter Atherton and Lewis Emanuel are under threat if the fit-again duo return but others, like Nicky Summer-bee, were also under par against Hartlepool.

"There will be changes. There were certain areas on Saturday that didn't do themselves justice."

As revealed in later editions of the T&A yesterday, Craig Armstrong will not be involved after being told he can leave City.

Todd added: "Craig's biggest problem is that he has been out of football for so long. Strong decisions have to be made and now it's up to him to look forward and find something else."
