Thorn said to the CT: “Having Sheffs and Bakes will be a bonus and at the moment Gary is probably the best on to play in that role because he can create and score goals from there. So it is important that we have him back firing and by his own admission he hasn’t really got going yet this season.
"It’s also important that the senior boys pull their weight and start turning in consistent performances and chipping in with a few goals as well.”
On the down side, centre-back Richard Wood remains a doubt for the trip to the Keepmoat Stadium leaving 19-year-old Nathan Cameron on standby.
And the City boss revealed that he and his players are upbeat about bouncing back from last weekend’s disappointment.
“The boys have been good in training this week where there has been a good atmosphere and buzz about the place, as there has been all season,” revealed Thorn who is looking forward to continued excellent support from the travelling fans.
“We have bounced back because we know that things will come good for us and we are going to go to Doncaster to play our football and try to get a result.
“The supporters were terrific up at Leeds and it will be lovely if we get the same tomorrow and get a result for them.”
