Following two successive home matches, Rochdale are back on the road this weekend as they make the short trip to Accrington Stanley’s Store First Stadium.

 

Dale head into the encounter unbeaten in their last three games after a 1-1 draw with Oxford United and wins over Bury and Torquay United. Stanley are still searching for their first league win of the season, after taking just a point from their seven opening fixtures – the point coming from a 2-2 draw at home to Portsmouth last month.

 

Dale Captain and former Accrington Skipper, Peter Cavanagh, will again be missing for Keith Hill’s side with an Achilles problem, however Peter Vincenti is once again available for selection after serving a one match ban.

 

Hill’s counterpart, James Beattie, will be without Ian Dunbavin, Laurence Wilson, Michael Liddle and Danny Webber who have been ruled out due to injury.
