Rochdale must check on goalkeeper Robert Sanchez ahead of Tuesday’s League One clash against MK Dons.
The on-loan Brighton stopper missed Saturday’s 3-1 win at Bolton with a knee injury, with Jay Lynch stepping in to make his league debut for Dale.
Paul McShane continued his defensive partnership with Eoghan O’Connell in Saturday’s win, while Rhys Norrington-Davies stepped straight into the back line after international duty with Wales Under-21s.
Midfielder Stephen Dooley remains doubtful with an ankle injury sustained earlier this month.
Paul Tisdale must once again decide if Ben Reeves is ready for a starting place in his MK Dons side after another impressive substitute appearance.
Reeves, easing his way back from two months out with a knee injury, came on late in Saturday’s goalless draw against Coventry and saw a late shot cannon back off the underside of the crossbar.
Kieran Agard returned to action as a substitute in the match but Alex Gilbey was not in the squad following an illness.
Sam Nombe, Rhys Healey and Joe Mason remain out.
