Rochdale without suspended Keith Keane against Northampton

Rochdale will be without the suspended Keith Keane for Saturday's Sky Bet League One home clash with Northampton.

Midfielder Keane begins a two-match ban after being sent off in the 3-1 loss at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday.

Defender Niall Canavan, who sat out that game having sustained an injury during the warm-up, is expected to remain sidelined.

Keith Hill's Dale are ninth in the table, six points behind sixth-placed Southend.

Northampton have no fresh injury concerns for their trip.

John-Joe O'Toole (groin) missed last week's goalless draw against Oxford but should be fit to return.

Luke Williams was also sidelined for the game with a hamstring injury but will likely feature in the starting XI.

The Cobblers have no suspension concerns as they look to end a two-game winless run.
