No worries for Dale boss

Rochdale boss Keith Hill has an almost full-strength squad to choose from for his side's home game against Southend.


Hill has no new injury or suspension worries as Dale bid to end their three-game goal drought and return to the top of the table with a first win in four matches.


Leading goalscorer Scott Hogan suffered no reaction after returning to the starting line-up last week following a knee injury and is expected to resume. The last of his 19 goals this season was on March 1 when he scored a hat-trick against Oxford.


Dale lost 3-0 at Mansfield last week and require seven points from their final four games to guarantee automatic promotion.


Southend manager Phil Brown could shuffle his pack after a damaging defeat last time out.


Brown's men went down 1-0 at home to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, a loss which left them just one point clear of eighth-placed York.


Barry Corr and Jacob Murphy, who has made three substitute appearances but has yet to start since his loan switch from Norwich, are likely to benefit should Brown make changes.


Goalkeeper Paul Smith is still struggling with a calf problem so Luke Chambers could continue on the bench.
