Match Preview

Options for Hill Rochdale boss Keith Hill has a full-strength squad available for the home clash with Brentford. Dale beat Southampton 2-0 on Tuesday to underline their promotion pedigree and now lie in sixth spot. The only change that Hill made to his starting line-up was to bring Joe Thompson into the side in place of Will Atkinson in a tactical switch. Hill has no injury or suspension concerns as his men seek to maintain their play-off challenge and build on their win against Nigel Adkins' side. It was the second time Rochdale have beaten the Saints this season, having won 2-0 at St Mary's earlier in the campaign. Hill said: "I cannot applaud the lads enough. They just keep raising the bar and don't want the season to end." Brentford are waiting on the fitness of Leon Legge. The centre-half lasted just 25 minutes of Tuesday night's defeat by Walsall after suffering a groin injury. Karleigh Osborne came on for Legge and will be in line to start if he is ruled out. Gary Alexander missed out at Walsall through illness but is expected to return, although fellow striker Charlie MacDonald (ankle) remains sidelined. Simon Moore continues in goal with regular number one Richard Lee (shoulder) still missing, while goalkeeping coach Simon Royce will be on the bench as Sunderland loanee Trevor Carson has jarred his knee. The Bees have extended teenage forward Jeffrey Schlupp's loan spell from Leicester in time for the trip.

Match Report

Simpson downs Dale Rochdale slipped out of the play-off places after Robbie Simpson`s late winner. Keith Hill's in-form side had been harbouring thoughts of a second successive promotion but striker Simpson brought them back down to earth with 11 minutes remaining. Sam Saunders raced down the right-hand side and flighted in a teasing cross which Simpson met with a firm six-yard header. Dale had earlier fashioned a series of chances which all went begging. Will Atkinson fired wide from 12 yards and then skipper Gary Jones went close with a rasping 25-yard strike. However, Brentford held firm and snatched victory through Simpson's predatory late strike.
