Peterborough United travel to Lancashire to face a struggling Rochdale side. What do you think the score will be?
Rochdale -Vs- Peterborough United
Venue: Crown Oil Arena (aka Spotland)
Date: Saturday, 25th November, 2017
Posh have a very poor record this season against teams in or around the relegation places this season and they come up against another team struggling this season when they travel to Rochdale.
Rochdale are currently in 22nd place, two points from safety and haven`t won in their last three League matches.
Posh moved up to seventh place following their victory over Portsmouth at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday evening which was their fourth win in seven matches in all competitions.
Although Dale are struggling at the wrong end of the table, they`ve got a better home record than Posh having won three and drawn three of their eight home League matches. Their last home League match was over a month ago when they beat Bristol Rovers one-nil thanks to a Matt Done goal. They have played two more games at home since then but they have come in the FA Cup, where they beat non-league Bromley four-nil, and the Checkatrade Trophy which saw them beat Blackburn Rovers 5-3 on penalties after the match had ended one-all.
Away from home, Posh blew their hosts away in their first two League matches beating both Bristol Rovers and Northampton Town four-one. Sadly, things haven`t gone so well since as they`ve drawn four and lost two of their six away League matches.
Last season, Posh did the double over Dale scoring three goals in both matches. They won 3-1 at the ABAX Stadium last February but they left it late on the opening day of the season to grab all three points as Gwion Edwards grabbed the winning goal in the 89th minute for a 3-2 victory.
Those wins were two of 23 League victories Posh have achieved over Dale with Dale picking up just 9 wins in 48 League clashes!
Can Posh inflict another League defeat over Dale on Sunday?
