Rochdale V Coventry at Crown Oil Arena : Match Preview

15 April 2017

Keith Hill may stick with a winning formula

Rochdale manager Keith Hill may opt for more of the same against Coventry after a side showing three changes produced a much-improved display against Bury.

Niall Canavan's wait for a return from injury continued as he was left out of Thursday's win, and Harrison McGahey's impressive performance offered little indication of a vacancy opening up in central defence.

Matthew Lund was also absent as manager Keith Hill picked "a team to play against Bury" and the midfielder will have to hope for a recall.

Joe Thompson continues his battle with cancer.

Coventry manager Mark Robins will have one eye on next season after his side were relegated following the 1-1 home draw with Charlton.

Captain Jordan Willis should continue in defence after returning from injury for the Charlton game and midfielder Callum Reilly will hope to feature after being an unused substitute last time out having recovered from a hamstring injury.

Striker Kwame Thomas returned from a groin strain to play almost the entire second half against Charlton and will hope to start at Rochdale.

Thomas came on for Stuart Beavon and Robins will have to decide which striker gets the starting place on Monday.
