Rochdale face a trip to Darlington at 96.6 TFM Darlington Arena on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Dale will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 40 and win only 15 of the 70 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in October 2006, where Rochdale annihilated the Dale 0 - 5 in a League Two match.
