It comes after being taken all the way to a penalty shoot-out in the Carabao Cup versus Notts County, which United won 6-5, after drawing 3-3 following extra-time.

Graham Alexander will be hoping his side can record their first three points of the season, following their opening day draw with AFC Wimbledon.

Meanwhile, the Dale will also be seeking their first league win, after they lost 2-0 away at Portsmouth.

TEAM NEWS…
In his pre-match interview, Alexander revealed three or four players were nursing slight knocks after Tuesday night.

Josh Morris went for an X-ray and is clear of any major injury after hobbling off just after half-time against Notts County, but he will be monitored in training to see if he his fit for this weekend’s match.

Neal Bishop will train and could also play since suffering from a dead leg last Saturday and missing out in midweek.

The same applies for Lewis Butroid, who has been training again and could be in contention.

However, Luke Williams won’t feature in the squad despite continuing his step-up in training. The club want to arrange a reserve game for him to play in first.

PREVIOUS MEETINGS…
The Iron won their last game against Rochdale 2-1 at Glanford Park in March.

They found themselves behind at half-time, but second-half goals from Paddy Madden and Matt Crooks was enough to change the game around and get the victory.

ONE TO WATCH…
Having come through the Rochdale youth system and signing a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2020, Callum Camps is certainly a dangerman for Keith Hill’s men this Saturday.

Camps, who is just 21-years-old, is a bright prospect and has played over 100 games for Dale, scoring on 16 occasions.

The attacking midfielder scored the only goal in their Carabao Cup game against Mansfield Town from 25-yards out on Tuesday.
