Hill penned a new three-year contract at Spotland on Thursday and revealed planning for next season is already underway.
As part of those preparations, on-loan Luton defender Wayne Thomas is expected to feature at either centre-half or right-back.
Thomas is yet to play since joining from the Hatters last month, largely as a result of Dale's six-match unbeaten run, and Hill is keen to take a closer look at the 33-year-old.
Youth team starlet Callum Camps will hope for further action after coming off the bench to make his debut during the second half of last weekend's 2-2 draw with Port Vale.
Ritchie Jones (ankle) is expected to miss out once more, while Andrew Tutte, Rhys Bennett (both knee) and Reece Gray (broken leg) remain long-term absentees.
