Swindon have doubts over defender Kevin Amankwaah (knee) and midfielder Simon ferry (ankle).
Goalkeeper David Lucas (shoulder) and striker Vincent Pericard (groin) also remain doubtful.
Swindon Town boss Danny Wilson told BBC Points West: "The first goal will be very important to us and if we can get our noses in front there may be doubts in the players' minds at Rochdale.

"If you look at our recent games we're getting better, there's more confidence and more importantly we're getting players back.
"With that performance on Saturday (against Colchester), which I thought was terrific, what a time to build on that now."
