Rochdale V Walsall at Crown Oil Arena : Match Preview

22 December 2017
Rochdale have no new injury worries for Walsall clash

Rochdale look set to have the same group to choose from for Saturday's League One home clash with Walsall as they did last time out.

Dale came through the 0-0 draw with Oxford last weekend apparently unscathed.

That match saw Keith Keane return to the matchday squad, having recovered from a groin problem.

An unused substitute on that occasion, the midfielder will be hoping this contest brings what would be his first appearance since August 23.

Walsall are without midfielder Florent Cuvelier after he suffered a knee injury.

The Belgian will not need surgery but he has made just eight appearances for the Saddlers during an injury-hit campaign.

West Brom loanee Tyler Roberts (hamstring) is also out for the trip to Spotland leaving Walsall light up front.

Striker Amadou Bakayoko is suspended after being sent off in last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Northampton.
