Rochdale will hope defender Paul McShane is fit enough to start Saturday’s home League One clash with Plymouth.
McShane has been battling a number of niggles and was an unused substitute in Tuesday’s 1-0 loss at Blackpool.
Captain Eoghan O’Connell remains sidelined with a hamstring problem.
Jimmy Ryan has a knee injury with no clear timescale for a return so far.
Midfielder Lewis Macleod remains sidelined for Plymouth with an ankle injury.
The 26-year-old has not played since January 2 and Argyle are carefully managing his recovery.
Club captain Gary Sawyer is still sidelined but starting to step up his return to training after long-term ankle trouble.
Nottingham Forest loanee Tyrese Fornah should continue in midfield.
