Match Preview

Sheehan back in the frame Alan Sheehan will come back into the reckoning for Notts County when Rochdale visit Meadow Lane. The defender was suspended for the 2-0 victory at Stevenage after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season during the 1-1 draw at Exeter. Jon Harley replaced him last weekend and manager Martin Allen must decide whether to stick with the transfer-listed full-back or restore Sheehan to the starting XI. Charlie Allen had to be substituted at Stevenage due to a dead leg but the midfielder should be okay. Goalkeeper Rob Burch is likely to remain sidelined by a toe problem while defender Stephen Hunt will continue to miss out with his ankle injury. Rochdale pair David Ball and Jake Kean will return to contention. Neither Peterborough striker Ball or Blackburn goalkeeper Kean were given permission to play in the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Aldershot, but the loanees are expected to go straight back into manager Steve Eyre's starting line-up. Ball could play his final game for Dale, with Peterborough considering an early recall for the six-goal forward, while Kean is expected to step back in for Matty Edwards. Eyre has no other injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make further changes, but midfielders Brian Barry-Murphy and Joe Thompson, and striker Matthew Barnes-Homer were all second-half substitutes at Aldershot and are pushing for recalls. Dale are chasing just their third league win of the season.

Match Report

Magpies soar into top six Lee Hughes' sixth goal of the season saw Notts County move into the League One play-off places after a 2-0 win at Meadow Lane that also dumped Rochdale into the relegation zone. Martin Allen's men were on top throughout, with powerful forward Ben Burgess heading wide from Alan Judge's cross. Burgess then turned provider for the goal in the 35th minute, playing the ball into an unmarked Hughes on the penalty spot and the veteran marksman found the bottom corner with a simple left-foot finish. Just before the break, Gary Jones' shot from outside the area had County keeper Stuart Nelson diving across his goal but it was never a serious threat. Notts had the better chances in the second half too, with Alan Sheehan hitting a slow volley straight at England Under-20 goalkeeper Jake Kean. Substitute Cristian Montano then played in Hughes, who slipped the ball to Judge, but his first touch was heavy and Kean collected. Montano almost settled the game in the last minute with a sweet volley from the left but it was left to Sam Sodje to wrap up the win, glancing home Sheehan's free-kick from the right with the last meaningful move of the game.
