Rochdale could be without a number of first-team players for the FA Cup visit of National League North side Boston on Sunday.
Injuries have blighted Brian Barry-Murphy’s side in recent months, with Paul McShane, Ollie Rathbone, Ryan McLaughlin, Tyler Magloire and Jim McNulty all huge doubts.
McShane limped off against Wrexham in their first-round replay, while Rathbone has not featured since the start of November.
McLaughlin, Magloire and McNulty are all suffering from long-term problems.
Boston will be without experienced midfielder Martyn Woolford as they look to cause an upset against their Sky Bet League One opponents.
The ex-Bristol City and Sheffield United man is suspended after being sent off for violent conduct during United’s 4-2 win over Farsley two weeks ago.
Manager Craig Elliott is also without defender Alex Penny, who misses the game with concussion.
Top scorer Jordan Thewlis is available, however, as is Huddersfield loanee Demeaco Duhaney.
