Hill set to stick with same XI
Rochdale boss Keith Hill will be reluctant to make any changes when his in-form side host Charlton.
Dale chalked up a third successive win with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Hartlepool on Friday and have no fresh injury or suspension concerns.
Defender Robbie Williams kept his place in the side at Victoria Park despite Joe Widdowson being fit again and Joe Thompson came off the bench late on following his return from a groin injury.
With safety all but secured, Hill is desperate for his side to finish as well as possible as they bid to sneak into the play-off places.
Hill said: "I'm pleased with the points we have and we are safe now, definitely on 54 points. Now we make sure we don't tail off."
Paul Benson returns to the Charlton squad for the trip.
The striker has completed a four-match ban after his second red card of the season against MK Dons earlier this month.
But he may have to settle for a place on the bench if boss Chris Powell sticks with Bradley Wright-Phillips and Frank Nouble in attack.
Winger Johnnie Jackson is still missing with an Achilles problem and defender Kelly Youga is out for the season due to a knee injury.
Young full-back Carl Jenkinson is set to miss out again after turning down a new contract.
Former Manchester United midfielder Michael Stewart could be added to the squad after he recently signed a short-term deal following a successful trial.
Dale march continues
Rochdale made it four straight wins after a 2-0 victory against Charlton at Spotland.
The result stretched the Addicks' run without a win to 11 games as goals either side of the break from Jason Kennedy and Craig Dawson sunk Chris Powell's team.
Dale goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams saved angled drives from Scott Wagstaff and Therry Racon inside the opening five minutes and later kept out Joe Anyinsah's shot.
Keith Hill's side grabbed the lead in the 34th minute. Robbie Williams' centre was cut out by Jose Semedo, but his clearing header dropped invitingly to Kennedy on the edge of the area and he sent a stunning volley into the bottom right-hand corner of Rob Elliott's net.
The goal ignited Dale and before the break Chris O'Grady fed Matt Done for a clear view at the target, but he pulled his shot wide of the upright.
Paul Benson's introduction early in the second half put Dale briefly on the back foot, Fon Williams tipping his volley over the bar before pushing away a glancing header from the frontman.
But the home side settled again once they had got to grips with Benson and made a couple of changes of their own. They made the result safe in the 75th minute when Dawson scrambled the ball across the goalline after Done's corner caused panic in the Charlton six-yard box.
Racon saw a goalbound effort cleared off the line by Dawson late on while Bradley Wright Phillips' volleyed over the crossbar.
