Manager Keith Hill has given a brief injury update on the four players currently out of action.
Calvin Andrew (knee), Stephen Dawson (calf) and Olly Lancashire (ankle) are all expected to spend a brief spell on the side-lines, while Matty Lund will miss the rest of the season as he continues to undergo rehab following an operation on his dislocated shoulder.
Hill told Dale Player: “I’m looking at reintroducing Stephen Dawson, Calvin Andrew and Oliver Lancashire into fold in the next couple of weeks. There’s only Matty Lund who has got a long term injury and he’ll be available for next season.
“Those other three players should be back in training at the end of next week, or in the next two weeks at the most.”
