Rochdale v MK Dons preview

Alan Pardew: Unable to stop Leicester

Rochdale goalkeeper Jamie Jones will return to contention for the home game against MK Dons following suspension.

Jones sat out the midweek win against Leyton Orient following his dismissal in last Saturday’s defeat at Gillingham and boss Keith Hill must decide whether to recall him or retain Josh Lillis.

Matty Lund will miss the last two games as he remains suspended following his dismissal at Gillingham and fellow midfielder Stephen Dawson (knee) will not feature again this season.

Otherwise, Hill has a clean bill of health as Dale chase the win that could keep their outside play-off chances alive.

Samir Carruthers should be fit for MK Dons, who are also desperate for the three points as they chase automatic promotion.

Carruthers hobbled off with a dead leg towards the end of the 3-0 home victory over Doncaster in midweek but Dons manager Karl Robinson thinks he will be available.

Fellow midfielder Carl Baker did his chances of a recall no harm at all with two goals against Rovers after coming on as a substitute midway through the second half, while Dean Bowditch also scored from the bench on Tuesday night.

The likes of Danny Green, Daniel Powell and Devante Cole are also options for Robinson, whose team remain one point behind second-placed Preston.
