Rochdale boss Keith Hill has no major injury or suspension concerns for the home clash with Charlton.

Hill and his players this week spent a three-day training camp in Marbella and are in fine shape as they bid to secure a win that would lift them over the Addicks.

Nicky Adams and Josh Thompson were passed fit for last weekend`s 1-0 win at Yeovil and goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams will again line up between the posts.

Hill's side are unbeaten so far in 2011 having won four of their last six games and skipper Gary Jones is targeting another promotion challenge.

He said: "Let's start dreaming of making the play offs, or maybe even better and getting an automatic place. Why not?"

Bradley Wright-Phillips and Paul Benson could form a new-look Charlton strikeforce.

Wright-Phillips became new manager Chris Powell's first signing when he arrived from Plymouth earlier this week and is in line to make his debut.

And he may be partnered by eight-goal striker Benson, who returns from a three-match ban following his red card at Colchester on New Year's Day.

However, Powell has plenty of attacking options after Scott Wagstaff and Liverpool loanee Nathan Eccleston were on target in the 2-0 win over Argyle last Saturday.

Winger Johnnie Jackson, the Addicks' top scorer with 14 goals, will be checked over after limping off with an ankle injury.

Chris Solly is back in training after ankle surgery but fellow defender Kelly Youga (knee) is still out.
