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

Sequence statistics:
Rochdale Drawn last 2 games at home.
Failed to win in previous 3 home matches.
Not won in the 3 most recent games.
Stockport Co. 5 games since last defeat.
