Rochdale will retain on-loan Leicester goalkeeper Conrad Logan in their starting line-up against Bradford after extending his stay at the club until January.
Logan has been drafted in as cover for Josh Lillis, who will be sidelined for another nine weeks due to the ankle injury recently sustained at Chesterfield.
Centre-half Ollie Lancashire (groin) and midfielder Matty Lund (shoulder) are both still out, but boss Keith Hill has no other new injury or suspension problems.
Dale, who have four points from their first four matches, are bidding for their first win of the season at Spotland.
Bradford boss Phil Parkinson will have on-loan pair Mason Bennett and Jordan Pickford available again following his side's Capital One Cup win against Leeds.
Derby striker Bennett and Sunderland goalkeeper Pickford were both refused permission to play in Wednesday night's derby triumph by their parent clubs.
But Parkinson will be without defender Andrew Davies, who will be out for two months after breaking his arm in last week's home defeat to Peterborough.
Attacking midfielder Billy Clarke returned from a hamstring injury to play the full 90 minutes against Leeds and will be hoping to retain his place.
