Rochdale manager Keith Hill has no new injury worries ahead of the home match against Huddersfield.

As a result Hill looks likely to stick with the same starting XI that began the 1-1 draw with Plymouth on Saturday.

Recent loan signing Deane Smalley made his debut in the match against the Pilgrims coming off the bench and looks likely to be named among the substitutes again.

Defender Scott Wiseman remains sidelined as he continues his recovery from a stomach muscle problem which has caused him to miss the last three games.

Dale have acclimatised well to life in the third tier after last season's promotion and sit in sixth position in League One and are unbeaten in their last four matches.

Huddersfield winger Gary Roberts will miss the Rochdale clash as he will be sidelined for six weeks after breaking his arm in Saturday's defeat at Swindon.

Roberts was stretchered off at the County Ground after a heavy challenge from Swindon's Jonathan Douglas and was replaced by Anthony Pilkington, who is now a likely starter.

Town midfielder Scott Arfield is doubtful after also being forced out of the action on Saturday with a bruised calf and manager Lee Clark must decide whether to recall his replacement Antony Kay to the starting line-up.

Town slipped from first to fourth place following their second defeat of the season on Saturday, but can climb back into top spot with victory at Spotland if other results go their way.

'Costa Is A Bad Man. Suarez Is Not'

That's quite some claim. And yes, unfortunately we are still talking about this. We also have mails on Ronaldinho, possible replacements for Yaya Toure and more...

Red Mist Better Than Calculated Costa?

Hmmm. We're not sure about this argument - one Mailbox says Luis Suarez is easier to forgive because he is a little loco. We also have mails on Studge and more...
