Rochdale v Sheffield United preview
Last Updated: 26/02/16 10:01am
Rochdale will check on Ollie Lancashire ahead of Sheffield United's visit to Spotland.
The defender has missed the last two matches through illness. Peter Vincenti was also affected and sat out the draw at Bradford but returned as a late substitute against Fleetwood this week and he could now be pushing for a return to the starting line-up.
Recent signing Grant Holt has reported no ill-effects following his latest cameo from the bench on Tuesday night and the burly striker will be involved again on Saturday.
Holt was signed after Calvin Andrew sustained a foot injury, which will keep him sidelined, while Donal McDermott (stomach) and Scott Tanser (leg) remain doubts.
Sheffield United will be without suspended midfielder Dean Hammond, who sits out the first game of a two-match ban for reaching 10 yellow cards.
Florent Cuvelier could make his first start for the club since Boxing Day 2014 in Hammond's absence after stepping off the bench in last week's home win against Port Vale.
Centre-half Neill Collins is hoping to return to contention after missing the last two games with an ankle injury as the Blades bid to keep their play-off hopes alive.
Midfielder Jose Baxter remains unavailable following his suspension imposed by the club last week over an internal disciplinary matter.
