Football - Donnelly in line to return

Rochdale striker George Donnelly is hoping to make his first appearance in over two months at Scunthorpe.

Donnelly has been sidelined since the end of October with an ankle injury but returned as an unused substitute in Sunday's home win against Bristol Rovers.

Midfielder Gary Dicker is still nursing an injury after missing the last three games, but goalkeeper Josh Lillis shook off illness in time to keep a clean sheet at the weekend.

Scott Hogan is expected to resume up front after scoring his 11th goal of the season against Bristol Rovers as Dale bid for a third straight league win.
