Adams primed for Dale return
Nicky Adams is pushing for a starting place when npower League One strugglers Rochdale travel to Yeovil.
Adams came off the bench with Dale 2-0 down at home to Walsall last weekend and played his part in an attacking midfield role as John Coleman's side took a late 3-2 lead, only to be agonisingly pegged back by Andy Butler's injury-time leveller. Neill Byrne made his Dale debut at right-back and will hope to retain his place. Byrne's fellow defender Marcus Holness and midfielder Sean McConville were unused substitutes against the Saddlers but come into consideration as Coleman has a virtually full squad to choose from. Former Accrington man McConville is yet to make his full debut for Dale since joining on loan from Stockport last month. Midfielder Simon Hackney (abdominal) remains a long-term absentee and is unlikely to see action before the end of the season.
