The 22-year-old Rovers fan signed a non-contract deal with the Championship club last year and could make an appearance in front of an expected 4,000-plus crowd at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The hospice tweeted him a goodwill message this morning ahead of the game, saying: “Good luck @Louis_Tomlinson in your debut game for @drfc_official raising funds for us at Bluebell Wood. Thank you so much!”

Hospice staff will be selling special Louis goody bags at the match, with the proceeds going to Bluebell Wood.
