Match Preview

Lucas looking unlikely for Dale Rochdale goalkeeper David Lucas is a major doubt ahead of the clash with fellow npower League One strugglers Yeovil. Lucas was knocked unconscious following a sickening collision with Sheffield United defender Neill Collins in last weekend`s defeat at Bramall Lane. The incident caused Lucas to swallow his tongue and he credited United striker Richard Cresswell with saving his life by placing him in the recovery position before 10 minutes of treatment was administered on the pitch. The 34-year-old was taken to hospital with concussion but travelled back across the Pennines with the rest of the Rochdale squad later in the evening. Defender Marcus Holness missed the 3-0 loss with a groin strain and remains an injury doubt. Midfielders Joe Thompson (thigh) and Simon Hackney (abdominal) are long-term absentees, alongside Scottish defender Marc Twaddle (back). Yeovil will be without the suspended Bondz N'Gala for the trip. The centre-back was given his marching orders after picking up two yellow cards in the 2-0 home defeat to non-League Fleetwood in an FA Cup second-round replay on Tuesday night and serves a one-match ban. However, manager Terry Skiverton hopes to have midfielder Dominic Blizzard back in his matchday squad. Blizzard missed the Fleetwood match with a groin injury but is expected to return to contention. Meanwhile, on-loan Watford pair Rene Gilmartin and Gavin Massey are eligible to play at Spotland. The goalkeeper and striker were both prevented from playing in the FA Cup by their parent club in midweek.

Match Report

Great Gilmartin gets Glovers point Yeovil goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin kept Rochdale at bay with a second half wonder show - despite dislocating his finger - as it finished goalless at Spotland. Gilmartin pulled off a string of fine stops in a one-sided contest to frustrate Steve Eyre's team and give the Glovers a three-point cushion over their fellow League One strugglers. Dale were on top during the first half and went within a whisker of scoring when Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro sent a spectacular volley crashing against the crossbar. Akpa Akpro was denied again when he met Nicky Adams' cross at the near post as Gavin Massey blocked his effort on the line. Yeovil's best opening of the first half was created by on-loan Tottenham winger Jonathan Obika. He raced clear down the left flank and pulled the ball back for Conor Clifford who had time to pick his spot but was unable to beat keeper Matt Edwards from the edge of the area. Gilmartin dislocated a finger just after the break but played on through the pain barrier to deny Harry Bunn and Akpa Akpro, whose 61st-minute shot he pushed onto a post. The goalkeeper later pushed an Adams' free kick wide of the upright. Gilmartin's best save came immediately after Kerrea Gilbert had been sent off for a dreadful challenge on Joe Widdowson in the 77th minute. From the resulting free-kick, Adams' delivery was headed goalwards by Bunn but the keeper brilliantly pushed his effort over the crossbar.
