Dale swoop for Blackburn youngster

He has made two appearances for Rovers and recently signed a new deal which keeps him at Ewood Park until 2011.

Highly-rated winger Will Buckley is making steady progress from a foot complaint but has not featured since November.

Hill has no other major concerns as his side seek to move a step closer to their first promotion since 1969.

However, Hull winger Will Atkinson returned to the KC Stadium after his loan spell, which saw him play eight games and score three goals, expired.
