Rovers are relieved to be at home for Christmas - starting today against Ipswich Town.

Fellow strugglers Millwall also visit the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday.

And Paul Dickov is under no illusion about the need to pick up points at home in order to keep their heads above water in the battle at the bottom.

“We’ve got two homes and they’re two games we think we can pick points up from,” said Dickov.

“Over the last couple of games our home form has been reasonably good and we want to build on that.

“If we’re going to give ourselves a chance, it’s the home games you have to win.”

Chris Brown and Paul Quinn (both hamstring) face late fitness tests.

Harry Forrester is in contention to start after impressing as a second half substitute at Derby.
