Rochdale boss Keith Hill has no injury or suspension concerns ahead of the home clash with Exeter.

Dale lost 2-1 at Huddersfield in midweek as striker Liam Dickinson was replaced with 13 minutes remaining.

However, it was merely a tactical switch and Hill has a full complement of players to choose from.

Dale have seen their bid to claim a top-six finish take a blow after two straight defeats, yet Hill said there were plenty of positives to take from the Galpharm Stadium reverse.

He said: "I'm not despondent or deterred because that game gives me belief in what we're doing.

"To come to Huddersfield, the kings of League One, and play the way we did is rewarding and satisfying."

Exeter manager Paul Tisdale has no new injury or suspension worries for the trip.

The Grecians sustained no fresh knocks in Tuesday's comfortable 2-0 win over promotion-chasing Bournemouth, meaning Tisdale may opt to stick with the same side.

Richard Logan and Jamie Cureton are likely to keep their places up front after they linked up well and scored the decisive goals as Exeter picked up their first win in six attempts against the Cherries.

However, Tisdale made no substitutions in that game and may make changes in an attempt to freshen up his side.

Striker John O'Flynn is pushing for a recall after making the bench on Tuesday night, while midfielder David Noble is also hoping for a promotion to the starting line-up.
