Football – England – League One Betting Tips
Rochdale secured another three points to their tally for the season on Boxing Day when they cruised to a 3-0 home win over struggling Chesterfield and they’ll no doubt be looking for more of the same on Friday night when they entertain fourth from bottom club Shrewsbury Town.
The newly named Crown Oil Arena (which replaced Spotland) is the venue this evening as Rochdale go in search of posting a fourth consecutive win in League One following earlier wins over current league leaders Scunthorpe United as well as victories over Northampton Town and the aforementioned Chesterfield.
Rochdale have now chalked up nine consecutive wins on home turf amidst an impressive overall record of 9-1-2 26/8 and they’ve kept a total of seven clean sheets to date too. The forward trio of Andrew, Davies and Henderson have registered a total of 17 goals between them so far this season.
Visitors Shrewsbury Town have had their own problems of late as they sit fourth from bottom in League One and they head up north for Friday night’s clash with high-flying Rochdale sitting in the relegation pack.
The Shrews have produced mixed displays in recent matches as they’ve recorded wins against Millwall and Bristol Rovers but have also fallen to defeats against Fleetwood Town and Bolton Wanderers, and another tough trip to Lancashire beckons on Friday night as well.
Shrewsbury’s away record stands at a disappointing 2-3-7 11/21 which includes three defeats from their last four on the road with defeats at Sheffield United, Fleetwood and Bolton and they’ve kept just two clean sheets on their travels so far.
