Bournemouth will welcome back striker Michael Symes, midfielder Danny Hollands and full-back Warren Cummings.

Symes has been out for almost two months with an abductor strain, but will be in the squad to take on Dale after resuming full training and his return is timely as the Cherries prepare for their play-off campaign.

Hollands was suspended for the 2-2 draw with Hartlepool last weekend - the result which secured Lee Bradbury's side's top-six place.

An ankle injury kept Cummings out of the Pools game, with Rhoys Wiggins returning from a buttock muscle injury to take his place, but now both are available it will be a straight fight between them for the starting spot.

French defender Mathieu Baudry also missed out in the last match with a thigh injury and he is sidelined again, however he would be fit if required for the play-off games.

Rochdale boss Keith Hill will hand opportunities to a number of fringe players as his side end their campaign.

Hill has a full-strength squad at his disposal but will shuffle his pack and reward the patience of several players who have spent much of the campaign on the sidelines.

Highly-rated defender Craig Dawson is set to make his final appearance for the club before he heads to West Brom this summer.

Hill has nothing but praise for the centre-back and says he is an example for other young professionals in the game to follow.

He said: "He will go down as one of the best young players in Rochdale's history and it's going to be some task to replace him."
