The midfielder has been on the sidelines for a number of weeks with a hamstring injury.

If Jones does return to Dale's midfield, Dale Stevens, who is on loan from Oldham, could be the man to miss out.

Elsewhere in the squad, Ciaran Toner has returned to training after a prolonged battle against shin splints but he is unlikely to be fit for this weekend's game.

Manager Keith Hill has no other injury concerns ahead of a potentially defining match-up at Dean Court.

Bournemouth head the League Two table after a fine start to the season but Rochdale are in close contention in third place and just five points behind their rivals.

Victory for Hill's men would be a significant boost to their prospects of challenging for promotion this season.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
