Rochdale vs Accrington
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Spotland Stadium (Rochdale).
The Dale was lucky enough to play in League One this season as a series of wins at the end of last season avoided a possible relegation. But they have been playing better this time around and currently are in 16th spot with 5 wins and 7 losses. They are weak in defense, conceding 31 goals and scored only 22.
Keith Hill has led his team to 3 wins and 2 losses in the last 6 games they played. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of those games in all competitions. From the recent 5 home games, they won 2 and lost the same number of games. The final score had over 2.5 goals in 3 of those 5 matches as well.
Stanley is in their first season after promotion from League Two and they have leveled up with their performance also. Manager John Coleman has played an important role in his team is 7th in the table at the moment.
His team has won 7 and drawn the same number of matches to be where they are now. A win in this match could send them to the top 5 of the table. They have won and lost 2 games each in their last 6 matches across all venues.
But they are winless in last 3 away games and have only 2 wins in the last 6 matches on the road. Under 2.5 goals came in 6 of their last 8 away fixtures in all competitions. So the team is not so good away from home and the coach will have to look into it.
If the hosts do not give away easy goals in this match as they did previously they may get something out of it. Accrington also will need to find a positive result soon to end their winless run.
