Rochdale kick-off the 2014/15 campaign at home on Saturday as they host Peterborough United in the season opener.
After a pre-season in which Dale’s youngsters shone, Manager Keith Hill will have a selection head-ache for all the right reasons.
Jack Muldoon will be unavailable for the fixture as he continues to recover from the groin injury he suffered in Tenerife.
Posh say they will be without Joe Newell, who is side-lined with a broken toe, while Jon Taylor is rated doubtful.
The game has been designated as a ‘Wall of Colour’ day by the Football League. Will you be wearing blue? You’ll find everything you need to about the Wall of Colour HERE.
