Rochdale v Charlton Preview

So our first visit to Rochdale since 1974. 37 years.

On our last visit we drew 1-1 in the old third division. (This was during our last three season stay in this division)

On the face of it a closely matched contest should be on the cards. Rochdale with a slightly better overall record this season as far as points per game ratio, but only marginal.

What I think really goes in our favour is current form. Rochdale have won their last three, without conceding a goal (two of which were away from Spotlands), we as we all know have been on a monumentally bad run of ten games without a win. In fact our last win came at home to Peterborough back on the 12th February.

My logic is based on our last two performances. Draws against play off contenders Southampton and Bournemouth, where we fought as a team to avoid defeat and try to win the games. (showing the sort of spirit that has been really lacking of late). This coupled with the fact that every bad run HAS to come to an end at some point. And I think that this is about time. Very scientific there then in my punditry!

Come on you Reds!!!
