Chris Dagnall, Chris O'Grady and Adam Rundle are all undergoing treatment for various knocks and will be assessed. However, manager Keith Hill has also secured the services of Oldham midfielder Dale Stephens for another month's loan. The 22-year-old has impressed during his short time at Spotland and scored the equaliser in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Morecambe earlier this month. Stephens remains at Rochdale alongside Latics teammate O'Grady and can be recalled by the Boundary Park club at 24 hours notice. Defender Rory McArdle is still out with a dislocated shoulder and midfielder Ciaran Toner is also a long-term absentee due to a shin injury.
