Kennedy ready for Dale

Rochdale's on-loan midfielder Jason Kennedy could make his second debut for the club against Dagenham.

Kennedy completed a permanent move to Bradford in the summer but has struggled to force his way into Phil Parkinson's starting line-up and has teamed back up with Dale until the end of the season.

Central defender Olly Lancashire could return to the squad after being forced out of the recent draw at Chesterfield due to a knock, while striker Joe Bunney and defender Joe Rafferty hope to return after being rested for the FA Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Dale have won their last four home games in all competitions and are bidding to extend their unbeaten league run to four matches.

Luke Howell is expected to be fit for Dagenham.

The midfielder missed Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Southend having been forced off at half-time in last weekend's clash against Scunthorpe due to an ankle injury.

Otherwise, the Daggers boast a fully-fit squad as recent loan signing Luke Norris looks to make it three goals in his first three games for the club.

Manager Wayne Burnett is keen to bolster his ranks with a couple of additions prior to the close of the January transfer window on Friday night but it remains to be seen if the deals are done in time.
