Match Preview

Hill set to shuffle pack Rochdale boss Keith Hill could ring the changes when his side host Notts County. The 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Exeter on Saturday condemned Hill`s men to a third consecutive loss and put another huge dent in their play-off prospects. Hill has no injury or suspension concerns but may decide to shuffle his pack in search of a winning formula. Hill was disappointed to hear some supporters turning against their own side during the weekend reverse to Exeter, which left Dale 16 points adrift of the top six. Hill said: "When you are losing you need to feel confidence from the supporters that they believe the team can salvage something from the game. I don't think that was evident." On-loan midfielder David Martin could return to the Notts County squad. A groin injury has limited Martin to just three appearances since his arrival from Derby at the turn of the year. His last first-team outing was in a 1-1 draw against Walsall at Meadow Lane on February 2. Despite Martin`s possible return, Notts` injury crisis shows little signs of easing. Defenders Carl Regan (ankle and thigh), Krystian Pearce (head) and John Thompson (hamstring), midfielders Alan Judge (foot), Lewis Gobern (knee) and Ricky Ravenhill (ankle) and forwards Lee Hughes (hip), Ben Burgess (hamstring), Karl Hawley (thigh), Craig Westcarr (knee) and Kevin Smith (foot) are all likely to remain on the sidelines.

Match Report

Dale make it fourth time lucky Craig Dawson headed the only goal of the game as Rochdale returned to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Notts County at Spotland. Three defeats in their last three games had seen Keith Hill's men slip out of the play-off reckoning, but a narrow win over the Magpies at least halted their slide down the League One rankings. County striker Niogo Demba-Nyren wasted the best chance of the opening half, the frontman diverting Kevin MacDonald's cross away from goal when it appeared easier to score. Paul Ince's men had gone close early on when Graeme Lee met Ivan Sproule's corner with a diving header, his effort too high to trouble Owain Fon Williams in the Dale goal. The closest Rochdale came was Jason Kennedy's snapshot, the midfielder reacting sharply to meet Chris O'Grady's centre but unable to keep his effort down. The deadlock was broken within seconds of the restart, Nicky Adams' corner to the back post met by Dawson and his thumping downward header beat Stuart Nelson all ends up. The goal forced County out of their defensive shell and they pressed hard for an equaliser, Fon Williams pulling off eye-catching saves to keep out Demba-Nyren`s header and a dipping drive from Sproule, while Alan Gow's goalbound effort was blocked by the commanding Marcus Holness. Dale's search for a second saw Nelson save at full stretch from Gary Jones' volley, but in the end Dawson's effort was enough.
