Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander has no new injury concerns.

Four games of the Cod Army's debut Football League campaign remain and victory over Keith Hill's lower mid-table dwellers would appear to be vital if they are to secure a play-off place.

Town lie three points behind Exeter in seventh having played a game more.

Andy Mangan is set to feature in the matchday squad once more having been named among the substitutes for Fleetwood's back-to-back draws against Gillingham and Southend.

Mangan recently returned from six months on the sidelines with a serious knee injury.

Defender Rob Atkinson, who re-established himself as a first-team fixture under Alexander's management having spent the early part of the season on loan at Accrington, remains out due to a groin problem.

Terry Gornell could push for a return to the Rochdale starting line-up.

Former Shrewsbury forward Gornell has been sidelined with a groin problem in recent weeks but looked on from the bench as his team-mates completed a dramatic late 2-1 victory at Exeter on Easter Monday.

Joe Thompson had a positive impact as a second-half substitute against the Grecians but his second spell at Spotland was cut short on Thursday when he was recalled by parent club Tranmere to help remedy the Merseysiders' growing injury crisis.

Joe Rafferty may replace Kevin McIntyre in defence.

McIntyre was culpable when Jamie Cureton but Exeter ahead on the stroke of half-time, persuading boss Keith Hill to give the 19-year-old his first action in almost two months.
