Doncaster boss Dean Saunders confirms Coppinger worry

Doncaster Rovers James Coppinger
Coppinger is Doncaster Rovers' longest serving player

Doncaster Rovers manager Dean Saunders fears midfielder James Coppinger will be out for the rest of the season with a broken cheekbone.

The 31-year-old sustained the injury in a clash with Bristol City midfielder Yannick Bolasie in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Ashton Gate.

Saunders told BBC Radio Sheffield: "He's fractured his cheekbone and it's an absolutely outrageous head butt.

"It's right in front of me and the referee's not even spoken to the lad."
