Bunney not hopping to it for Rochdale's meeting with Walsall

Rochdale will be missing Joe Bunney and possibly Keith Keane against Walsall.

Bunney is definitely not in boss Keith Hill's plans having triggered a one-game suspension when he accrued a fifth caution of the season in the 4-0 triumph over Swindon.

The other disappointing aspect to emerge from that success was a second-half injury to Keane, with Hill admitting he is highly unlikely to recover from the knock in time to play three days on.

Forward Calvin Andrew is still suspended, though defender Niall Canavan returns from a two-game ban of his own for a Dale team still without the injured Brian Barry-Murphy (Achilles), Jamie Allen (knee) and Peter Vincenti (ankle).

Walsall boss Jon Whitney could keep faith with the same team - despite a 2-1 defeat to Gillingham.

Whitey was happy with the performance even though the Saddlers slipped to a late loss at home on Saturday.

James O'Connor is fit again after a groin injury and Kieron Morris may be available after an ankle problem.

Maz Kouhyar is out with a knee injury having undergone surgery last month.
