Manager Keith Hill has revealed that the players will get some much needed rest this week.
With Dale not in action again until Sunday, Hill confirmed in the weekend's post-match interview that the players will get the chance to re-energise.
He said: “The players are going to get some rest – they need it. They look a little bit jaded and there has been an illness. Josh Lillis reported ill today [Saturday], so it’s spreading through the camp a little bit and we need to re-charge our batteries.
“The players will get a certain amount of time off this week because we don’t play until the Sunday. I want the players to be able to re-energise themselves and I might give one or two of the players a full week off and see them a week on Monday. I feel as though one or two of the younger players might need time to relax, refresh and not put themselves under too much pressure. Certain players have come such a long way in such a short space of time and I feel as though I have to make those changes [on Sunday] to benefit us in the long term.”
