Rochdale boss Keith Hill once again expects to be without Terry Gornell and Ritchie Jones.

Former Shrewsbury forward Gornell is facing another two to three weeks on the sidelines with a groin complaint, while midfielder Jones remains a major doubt due to his ankle problem.

Defender Rhys Bennett will miss the rest of the season due to an knee injury but fears that midfielder Andrew Tutte had suffered a similar fate were alleviated when a scan results revealed he does not need to go under the knife.

Tutte remains a doubt to face the Shots having missed the creditable 1-1 home draw with table-toppers Gillingham last Tuesday.

Reece Gray (broken leg) remains a long-term absentee.

Aldershot are expected to be without Danny Hylton.

The striker has been missing of late with a knee injury but despite making good progress the Easter programme is expected to have come too soon.

Manager Andy Scott has been working frantically this week to bring in attacking reinforcements to help the Shots' bid to avoid relegation from League Two but his efforts appear to have come up short, with the loan window closing on Thursday evening.

Fit-again left-back Anthony Tonkin had hoped to return for last weekend's trip to Port Vale and the postponement has given him an extra week to increase his fitness.

Defender Troy Brown has also returned to training of late having being sidelined for over a month with an ankle injury and he will be assessed.

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...
