Notts County Vs Rochdale, Sun 26 Dec 2010

Notts County midfielder Ricky Ravenhill is a doubt for the visit of Rochdale.

Ravenhill suffered whiplash and facial injuries that required stitches following a freak collision with team-mate Neal Bishop during the early stages of the FA Cup win against Bournemouth nine days ago.

Striker Luke Rodgers is also a doubt but Liam Chilvers will definitely miss out after the defender suffered knee ligament damage prior to the visit of Bournemouth.

Manager Paul Ince will make few changes but should Ravenhill be fit, he is likely to name the same side that started the second round cup tie against the Cherries.

Rochdale boss Keith Hill will have on-loan goalkeeper Josh Lillis available for the trip.

Lillis has returned to Spotland from Scunthorpe to resume his loan spell after recovering from a hamstring injury.

As a result, Luke Daniels - who stood in for Lillis - has returned to West Brom.

The busy Christmas programme is set to be a major test of Dale's thin squad, but Hill is determined to keep on pushing forward.

He said: "I think we should be given a little bit more respect from outside for what we've done for this club.

"We want to continue that development, and that's why people shouldn't look at this season in isolation, whatever happens at the end of it."
