FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Rochdale at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Dale will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
|Rochdale||Drawn last 2 games at home.|
Failed to win in previous 3 home matches.
Not won in the 3 most recent games.
