Recent respective form guides

Rochdale's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Dale have scored 10, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Stockport Co.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Hatters have hit 5 goals, 18 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Rochdale's 34 points from 25 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Stockport Co. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 24 games have yielded only 18 points.
