Highly-rated midfielder Cody Johnson was recalled from his loan spell at Rochdale last Tuesday and was thrown straight into their Carabao Cup clash at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday.

The 19-year-old, who is from Oldham, is highly-rated and the club have a decision to make on what to do with him. He has spent time away at Banbury United in the National League North in the past to get some experience under his belt.
