Team news for Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy second-round tie between
Rochdale and Bury at Spotland (kick-off 7.30pm).
Rochdale have no new injury worries.
Dale enjoyed a dramatic triumph over fellow near-neighbours Accrington at the weekend, with boss John Coleman presiding over a 3-2 win on his return to the Crown Ground.
Captain Peter Cavanagh has struggled with a calf problem over recent weeks but was named among the substitutes on Saturday.
Although he was not introduced into the action, Cavanagh will target a first appearance since starting the 1-0 defeat to Burton a month ago when the Shakers arrive at Spotland.
The game is set to be the only meeting between the sides this term following Rochdale's relegation from League One last time around, which came despite 4-2 and 3-0 wins over Bury.
Winger Bobby Grant will serve the second game of a three-match ban following his red card in Dale's goalless draw with Bradford, while Reece Gray (broken leg), Luke Watson (knee) and Matt Edwards (wrist) remain long-term absentees.
Andy Bishop hopes to make his first-team return in Tuesday's derby clash.
Bishop was recalled from a loan spell with Wrexham before Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Swindon but did not receive international clearance in time to take part.
The striker, who last scored for the Shakers on Boxing Day last year, must now wait for the okay from the Welsh FA to play.
Bishop was on target against Dale at Gigg Lane 13 months ago but could not prevent a 4-2 defeat - the first half of a double inflicted by relegated Dale in League One last season.
Fellow forward Lenell John-Lewis is a long-term absentee along with defender Phil Picken (both knee).
Craig Jones (hamstring) returned to action from the bench at the weekend and the midfielder is pushing for a start.
