Holman a worry for Shots

Aldershot striker Dan Holman is doubtful for Sunday's home FA Cup second-round clash with Rochdale.

Holman, on loan from Colchester, is the latest player to be added to the club's long injury list after being forced out of last week's defeat at Wrexham and leaving the ground on crutches.

Midfielder Naby Diallo and winger Joe N'Guessan (both ankle) remain doubtful after missing out last week while Mark Phillips (quad), Damon Lathrope (groin), Anthony Tonkin (calf) and Josh Scott (foot) are all still struggling.

Defender Chris Barker returned from a calf injury at Wrexham unscathed and is expected to resume for Shots, who overcame Portsmouth in the first round.

Rochdale midfielder Tomasz Cywka, on loan from Blackpool, could be handed his first start for the club after making his debut off the bench in last week's home defeat to Oldham.

Matty Done sits out the last game of his three-match ban and fellow midfielder Peter Vincenti remains sidelined due to a knee injury but goalkeeper Josh Lillis could return to the squad following illness.

Manager Keith Hill has confirmed he will rest one or two of his younger players while defenders Ollie Lancashire and Michael Rose, plus midfielder Bastien Hery are pushing for recalls.

Dale, who beat Northampton in a replay in the first round, are chasing their first win in four matches.
