Rochdale vs Luton
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 3 November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/16.00 CET
Venue: Spotland Stadium (Rochdale).
Rochdale will host the newcomers Luton on Round 17 of the League One season this Saturday.
Rochdale has 3 wins and 2 defeats in the last 6 games played at all venues. They have been losing games at a common interval.
The Dale are 14th in the table with 5 wins and 7 defeats in 16 games. The major problem they are facing this year, like last year is conceding goals.
The team from Greater Manchester have given away 31 goals and are only the third team this season to concede 30 or more goals.
They have won 3 of their last 6 games at Spotland Stadium with the recent win coming in the league against Charlton. In those 6 games 4 had a total of over 2.5 goals.
The win against Charlton broke a 3 game winless streak at home for Keith Hill’s team.
The Hatters have broken out of their shell and put up a stellar performance this season. They continued their great run of form from League Two into the third tier and are 5th in the table at the moment.
The team managed by Nathan Jones have won 8 of their 16 games in the league and lost only 4. They are on a 3 game win streak in the league after a defeat to Barnsley in Round 13.
The team from Bedfordshire has won 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions and have scored 16 goals in total from those matches.
But away record poses a concern for manager and the fans as they have won only 2 in the last 6 games on the road. They had an active 6 game winless run in away games which ended with a win at Oxford, but they have not found a consistent form in away games still.
It will be a close match this Saturday with both the sides as a win would grant them a rise in the table.
