Rochdale manager Keith Hill says he hopes midfielder Andy Cannon will play again this season despite fracturing his cheekbone.

The 22-year-old was forced off during Tuesday's defeat by Fleetwood and will see a specialist next week.

"If he does need an operation then he'll be out for the season," Hill told Dale's official websiteexternal-link.

"If he doesn't, to play again, if we can protect it with a mask, it's essential he proves his fitness."
