George Porter: Hoping to debut

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Rochdale and Morecambe at Spotland.

Rochdale manager Keith Hill is expected to select his starting line-up for the visit of Morecambe from an unchanged squad.

Hill has no new injury or suspension problems as his side bid to climb back into the automatic promotion places, but Peter Cavanagh and Ollie Lancashire both remain big doubts.

Midfielder Cavanagh has missed the last four games due to a hamstring injury and defender Lancashire has been sidelined with an unspecified problem.

Winger George Porter, hoping to make his first appearance for the club since signing from Burnley, is expected to start on the substitutes' bench again.

Morecambe have received a triple boost on the injury front ahead of their tricky away clash at Rochdale.

The Shrimps will have captain Mark Hughes (hamstring) and midfielder Andy Fleming (knee) both back in contention while the head injury which full-back Robbie Threlfall sustained against Burton is unlikely to keep him out.

Manager Jim Bentley is without midfielder Alex Kenyon, though, as he serves the second game of a three-match ban following his dismissal in the abandonment at Accrington.

Winger Marcus Marshall's injury nightmare continues but Bentley is hopeful his hamstring problem can clear up within the next week or so.
