Rochdale manager Keith Hill has moved to extend Scunthorpe goalkeeper Josh Lillis' loan spell until February 6 ahead of the trip to Dagenham.
The one-month emergency loan deal has a 24-hour recall option included should his parent club require his services at Glanford Park.
But Dale striker Anthony Elding will not be available having joined League Two strugglers Stockport on loan until the end of the season.
Dale defender Scott Wiseman was sent off in Monday`s 2-1 derby win at Oldham and begins a three-match ban.
Wiseman received a straight red card for a foul on Cedric Evina and Dale decided not to appeal the decision after speaking to referee Anthony Taylor and watching video footage of the incident.
Hull winger Will Atkinson is set to rejoin Dale on loan after a previous spell at Spotland last term but a hamstring injury may keep him out of action this weekend.
