The glovesman linked up with the League One side last month on a short-term move, and has had his emergency loan switch at Spotland extended. 

Having played for Boro against Dale earlier in the season, Lonergan has made six appearances for his loan club so far, helping them pick up four points from their previous two league outings with a win over Shrewsbury Town and a draw at home to Oxford United. 

Dale were without a fixture last weekend after their game against Accrington Stanley was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
