Rochdale V Wycombe - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Same again for Dale

Keith Hill has no new injury worries as Rochdale prepare to welcome Wycombe to Spotland.

Club captain Peter Cavanagh remains a doubt due to his troublesome calf complaint.

Top scorer Bobby Grant returned from a four-match ban to face Morecambe last time out and was joined in a three-man attack by new signing Ian Henderson.

Both men are pushing for inclusion once more, but Hill may look to make changes as Dale left the Globe Arena having slumped to a second consecutive 3-0 defeat.

In 10 league games since the turn of the year, Rochdale have a solitary victory to show for their efforts.

Joe Thompson appeared as a second-half substitute last weekend after re-joining on loan from Tranmere and the winger could press for a start along with Ashley Grimes.

Wycombe midfielder Joel Grant is a doubt having missed their victory over Fleetwood.

The 25-year-old received a kick on his ankle in their 2-1 win at Torquay and tests revealed he sprained ligaments.

Player-manager Gareth Ainsworth rates his chances as 50/50 for the clash and will make a late call on whether the winger travels with his squad.

Ainsworth has recovered from a dead leg sustained against the Cod Army and declared himself fit to face Dale.

And the Blues boss has no fresh injury worries with Matt Bloomfield, Danny Foster and Grant Basey all long-term absentees.

Wycombe are now 12 points clear of the relegation zone and 10 off the play-off spots in npower League Two having won back-to-back games in dramatic fashion.
