Rochdale boss Keith Hill will resist the urge to make wholesale changes to his side for the home clash with Yeovil.

Dale lost for only the second time in 10 League One outings during last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Exeter but Hill is keeping a sense of perspective.

He said: "I don't think it's time to ring the changes. I think we have to evaluate where we are and what we have achieved so far this season.

"The players have done exceptionally well."

Defender Scott Wiseman remains sidelined with a stomach muscle problem he sustained against Southampton.

Defensive colleague Joe Widdowson has missed the last two games with a knee injury but could now be fit for the clash with the Glovers.

Yeovil could welcome back skipper Craig Alcock into their starting line-up.

Alcock has been out of action with a back injury and missed three games before making his comeback as a substitute in last weekend's win at Walsall.

And the right-back is hopeful of making Terry Skiverton's starting line-up for the Spotland clash, while also reclaiming the armband from Paul Huntingdon.

JP Kalala is unlikely to be fit as he continues to struggle with a knee injury that has kept him out since mid-September, while Stefan Stam is also struggling with a knock.

The Glovers' win at Walsall last Saturday was their first victory in four and eased the pressure on boss Skiverton, whose side remain in the lower reaches of League One.
