Notts County vs Rochdale Prediction and Analysis

The hosts are in midst of a largely good run of games in the season barring 3 consecutive losses earlier in the season. They are currently 5th in the league with 28 points to their name. They made it to the first round of this competition having defeated Tamworth 4-0 in the qualifiers.

Rochdale, who was relegated from League One last season, finds themselves in the 13th position with 21 points. After an impressive start to the season, they went 8 games without a win earlier in the season which spoiled their momentum in getting back up to League One.

The visitors, despite playing 2 divisions higher than their opponents for Tuesday as recent as May of this year, are on a terrible run of games and have not yet registered a win this month.

With the momentum on the hosts’ side who are undefeated in 8 games across all competitions, I have backed Notts County to pull off an upset and proceed to the second round of this competition.

Kyle Wootton who is his team’s top scorer in the league scored the equalizer in the original fixture. I have backed him to once again score in this fixture.
