History of the Rochdale v Notts. County fixture

Rochdale prepare to entertain Notts. County at Spotland on Tuesday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 7 of the 15 previous games, with the Dale winning just 3.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Spotland was less than a year ago, in April 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a League Two match.
