Match Preview

Lillis available for Dale Rochdale boss Keith Hill will have on-loan goalkeeper Josh Lillis available for the home clash with Tranmere. Lillis returned to Spotland from Scunthorpe to resume his loan spell after recovering from a hamstring injury. As a result, fellow loanee Luke Daniels - who stood in for Lillis - has returned to West Brom and winger Joe Thompson is also fit after a hamstring strain as Hill's men bid to end 2010 on a high. Hill guided the club to their first promotion since 1969 in May and is determined to keep on pushing forward. He said: "I think we should be given a little bit more respect from outside for what we've done for this club. We want to continue that development." Tranmere boss Les Parry has virtually a full-strength squad available for the trip to Spotland. Rovers are set to end an 18-day wait for a match at Spotland after games against Swindon, Sheffield Wednesday and Brentford were all postponed. The period has allowed Marlon Broomes, Enoch Showunmi and Ian Thomas-Moore to shake off knocks that affected them earlier in December while Joss Labadie should finally return from suspension. Parry said: "Injury wise, players are fitter. Unfortunately the type of training we have been doing is tick-over work. People have not been able to get any significant long work under their belts. "You can do all the training you want but the way to get fit to play football is to play football. Rochdale are in the same boat as us."

Match Report

Dale back to winning ways Rochdale returned to action with a first win in seven games with a 3-2 success against the stubborn 10 men of Tranmere. Dale captain Gary Jones made it 10 goals for the season with a first-half brace either side of Joss Labadie's effort for the visitors, but it appeared the hosts hopes of victory were dashed by Ian Thomas-Moore's penalty late in the second half. But the points were secured when on-loan Scunthorpe striker Bobby Grant headed home Brian Barry-Murphy's corner in the 85th minute. The breakthrough arrived in the 26th minute when Marlon Broomes hauled down Chris O'Grady, referee Carl Boyeson awarding a spot-kick and showing Broomes a red card. Jones planted a firm drive wide of Joe Collister to hand the hosts the lead. Tranmere levelled in the 42nd minute through Labadie's neat finish but the home side restored the lead before half-time when Scott Wiseman's miscued attempt was forced over the line by Jones from close range. Collister denied O'Grady and Jason Kennedy after the break before Ladabie was brought down in the area by Kennedy and Thomas-Moore levelled matters from the spot. But Grant ruined the visitors' day when he met Barry-Murphy's cross with five minutes
