Footymad preview History of the Bournemouth v Rochdale fixture

Rochdale face a trip to Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Dale will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 10 and win only 3 of the 16 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in May 2011, with Rochdale inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the Cherries in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Bournemouth's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Cherries have scored 9, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Rochdale's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Dale have hit 9 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Bournemouth are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 10 points from 11 matches.

Rochdale find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 11 points from their 11 matches.
