Match Preview

Holness in for Dale Rochdale caretaker manager Chris Beech will have defender Marcus Holness available for selection against Stevenage. Holness was ruled out of last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Hartlepool and the home draw with Preston due to a thigh injury but is fit to contest a place at the heart of the Dale defence. Goalkeeper David Lucas is also back in contention having received the all clear on Monday following a head injury initially sustained during December's defeat at Sheffield United. Lucas will battle it out with on-loan West Ham youngster Peter Kurucz as he looks to regain his place between the posts. Long-term injury victims Marc Twaddle (hamstring) and Simon Hackney (abdominal) remain on the sidelines. Stevenage captain Mark Roberts takes over as player-manager for the trip. Roberts has been handed the reins after Graham Westley left to take over at Preston, with Boro now looking for a new boss. Chairman Phil Wallace told the club's official website: "We would like to thank Graham for all he has done for the football club. "In the time he has been with the club we have developed into a successful Football league outfit with two promotions and exciting cup triumphs under his management." Roberts may hand a debut to James Wallace after the 20-year-old signed on a month's loan from Everton this week. John Mousinho continues to sit on the sidelines as he recuperates from a long-term foot injury.

Match Report

Five-star Boro down ten-man Dale Managerless Stevenage began life after Graham Westley in positive fashion as they demolished lowly Rochdale 5-1 at Spotland. Lawrie Wilson scored twice early in the second half either side of a brace from Luke Freeman before Joel Byrom completed the scoring for Boro. Brett Ormerod replied for Rochdale on his debut for the club to make it 2-1 but the sending off of Joe Widdowson shortly afterwards ruined any chance of a comeback. Stevenage lost Westley to Preston this week but they did not lose their form. Boro arrived at Spotland having lost only once in the last 12 league outings and took the lead after 18 minutes when Freeman cut inside Jason Kennedy before beating goalkeeper Peter Kurucz at his near post. The visitors extended their advantage straight after half-time, Chris Beardsley set up Wilson for a 15-yard drive which gave Kurucz no chance. Ormerod briefly gave Dale a glimpse of hope when he volleyed home a Daniel Bogdanovic cross after 52 minutes but Stevenage restored their two-goal cushion within seconds when Wilson was left unmarked to smash home his second goal of the game. Things went from bad to worse for the hosts four minutes later when Widdowson received a second yellow card for a desperate challenge on Beardsley. Freeman made it 4-1 with a stunning 25-yard strike just before the hour mark and Byrom got in on the act with a neat finish for the fifth goal in the 66th minute.
