Rochdale boss Keith Hill is boosted by the return of Jason Taylor for the home clash with Lincoln.
The Rotherham midfielder was ineligible to face his parent club on Tuesday as Hill`s table-toppers thumped Ronnie Moore`s side 4-0 at Spotland.
Hill will be reluctant to alter his line-up after such an emphatic victory but he could again be without defender Scott Wiseman.
Wiseman was injured in last weekend`s 1-0 at Macclesfield and Nathan Stanton replaced him and then deputised from the start against Rotherham.
Stanton looks set to retain his starting berth as Dale bid to move a step closer towards their first promotion since 1969.
Hill's side are currently eight points clear at the top of League Two and have won four of their last five outings.
Lenell John-Lewis is a doubt for Lincoln.
The young forward picked up a hamstring problem in training this week and a late decision will be made on his fitness.
A hamstring injury also continues to torment Paul Green and the defender will be assessed as well.
Striker Paul Connor is nearing a return from his hamstring troubles after another outing for the reserves this week but this game will probably come too soon.
Clark Keltie will definitely miss out against one of his former club`s after manager Chris Sutton reported the midfielder was nursing an injury.
He joins on-loan Aston Villa centre-half Nathan Baker (ankle) on the sidelines.
