LEAGUE 2 ...............


Visitors have improved a little under their new coach and I do expect them to be too good to go down, but they can climb off the foot of the table, a little later in the season. Rochdale are a team that regular readers will know that I like, if they win their two games in hand, they will be just a point or so outside the playoff places and that is about where I rank them, definitely top ten.

They have a fully fit squad and the benefits of that were clear to see last week, when the 1-0 scoreline win over Mansfield didn't really tell the full story. They dominated play and created 17 attempts on goal, 9 on target. It has been a similar tale for several matches, Dale play good football and keep the ball for long periods and are averaging 9 attempts on target, which is a big number, over the last 6 starts, including in a trip to Division 1 highflyers Southend. I think that they will have too much class for Wrexham.

6 points Rochdale -1/2 ball 1.90 asian line.

Good Luck.
