No new worries for Dale

24 April 2011 08:01
Rochdale travel to Charlton without any injury or suspension problems. Boss Keith Hill believes Dale will fail to reach the play-offs after losing at home to Carlisle, despite being just three points behind sixth-placed Bournemouth and with a final-day trip to Dean Court still to come. Hill made two changes on Saturday, with Joe Widdowson and Joe Thompson replacing Robbie Williams and Will Artkinson. He could make changes for a second game in three days. Williams and Atkinson will hope for recalls along with Josh Thompson, Brian Barry-Murphy and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro. Defeat in London, combined with a home win for Bournemouth against relegation-threatened Bristol Rovers, would virtually end Rochdale`s play-off hopes. Hill`s side would be six points behind the Cherries, who have a superior goal difference, with two matches remaining.
