Dale travel across Lancashire in good spirits following a useful 3-2 win over Tranmere at Spotland.
And manager Keith Hill has no injury or suspension worries to contend with as they eye up their near neighbours.
Winger Joe Thompson will hope Hill freshens his line-up however following his return from a hamstring problem.
Thompson had a 15-minute run out in the defeat of Tranmere as he looks to force his way back into the first team.
Bobby Grant's 84th-minute goal will also hand the manager a poser after the striker came off the bench to hand Dale their first league win in seven attempts.
