It will be Stuart McCall’s first home league game as United’s manager, following a 1-1 draw at Accrington last weekend and a 0-0 (4-2 win on penalties) result against Wolves Under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy during the week.

Meanwhile, Rochdale have won their previous two outings, defeating Coventry City 1-0 in the league and local rivals Bury in the Checkatrade Trophy.

TEAM NEWS…

Loanee George Thomas will be missing from the squad again, as he is away on international duty with Wales Under-21s.

However, goalkeepers Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (broken arm) both remain long-term absentees for the Iron.

PAST ENCOUNTERS…

The Iron’s last two games against Rochdale have both ended 1-1. Duane Holmes found an equaliser against Dale at the Crown Oil Arena last season, while Ivan Toney levelled the scoring at Glanford Park earlier this year.

ONE TO WATCH…

Rochdale confirmed the loan signing of Zach Clough from Nottingham Forest on transfer deadline day and the forward hit the ground running for his new side.

Clough scored on his debut against Bury on Tuesday night and he will be hoping that he can repeat that on Saturday.

The 23-year-old scored 21 league goals in 59 games for Bolton Wanderers before he moved to Forest in 2017.
