The Cherries remain top of League Two despite having a small squad, and Tindall believes the extra rest this week could pay dividends.
He said: "It makes a difference for us not having a midweek match as we don't have a big squad.
"When you play on a Saturday and Tuesday, it takes a lot out of you physically and as we are not the best placed geographically, away games take more out of us because of the travelling.
"It's now important we keep focused and concentrate on the Rochdale game.
"It's important that we get something from that game as after that we have three long trips on consecutive Saturdays which is not ideal."
