Rochdale Preview – Can Dale claim first win at home?

A 3-1 win away from home at Northampton Town last weekend handed Rochdale their first win of this League Two season and ended a four-match sequence without a win in the fourth tier, although there’s been a gap of seven years since their last appearance.

This season, Rochdale have suffered defeats against Harrogate Town and Forest Green Rovers while picking up just a point in their opening home game of the season with a 0-0 draw with Scunthorpe United.

Rochdale experienced a poor campaign last season in League One and having registered just three wins out of their last 28 matches at home, Dale look to have a job on their hands here.

Our betting suggestion:

Colchester United Preview – Can U’s win back-to-back?

Colchester United will also head into this Friday night clash at the Crown Oil Arena on the back of a win as they recorded a 2-1 win away at Oldham Athletic last weekend and having lost just once this season to date, The U’s may fancy their chances here.

Within this period, Colchester have registered wins against Walsall, Southend United, Salford City and Oldham Athletic and although they’ve won just one of their last 17 away games, recent results on the road have been more encouraging.

Colchester have lost just two of their last eight matches on the road and the visitors have also kept five clean sheets within this period too.
