On-loan duo set for Dale debuts
Both players have signed one-month deals from Hull and Rotherham respectively. However, Hill looks set to be without a number of players through injury and suspension. Skipper Gary Jones is nursing a hamstring injury, winger Joe Thompson is struggling with a groin strain and goalkeepers Kenny Arthur and Matty Edwards remain sidelined with back and wrist injuries respectively. Midfielder Ciaran Toner is still not fully fit after shin splints and Dale Stephens and Simon Whaley have returned to Oldham and Norwich respectively following the end of their loan spells. Defender Nathan Stanton will serve the fourth and final game of his suspension.
