Hill: Squad in good shape

Hill: Squad in good shape

Summer signings Joe Widdowson, Brian Barry-Murphy, Josh Lillis, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Anthony Elding all made their debuts during Saturday's goalless draw at home to Hartlepool.

Highly-rated defender Craig Dawson played the full 90 minutes but continues to be linked with a move away from Spotland.

Rochdale have twice turned down transfer requests from the player over the summer following a £400,000 bid from Middlesbrough.

Boro, Burnley and Ipswich are all understood to be vying for his signature, raising questions over whether he will be involved at Oakwell.

Hill has no injury concerns to contend with ahead of the short trip to South Yorkshire.
