Rochdale defender Javal Vidal is doubtful for the game at Morecambe after sustaining an injury in midweek.
Vidal was forced off following a heavy challenge in Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Chesterfield and was replaced by Michael Rose, who could return to the starting line-up.
Striker George Donnelly is still struggling with the ankle injury that has kept him out of the last three matches, while defender Joe Rafferty and midfielder Matty Lund are among those pushing for recalls.
Skipper Peter Cavanagh (Achilles) played 90 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly, but remains four weeks away from a return as Dale look to avoid a third straight league defeat.
