The high flying Rotherham will be in action on Saturday as they travel to a Rochdale. With an unbeaten run in the league going on Rotherham will be clear favorites to get 3 points out of this match.

Just 2 points separate the Rotherham and toppers, Coventry. With Portsmouth also in the thick of the action, the fight for promotion is getting tighter.

Rochdale vs Rotherham: Prediction

Clearly the visitors have the upper hand in the post-game analysis. They are unbeaten in 4 of their 5 recent games on the trot and are chasing promotion. So they will be coming in all guns blazing on Saturday.

The Dale has enough firepower to score past this Rotherham defense. They have shown their attacking power against topper Coventry even though they lost that game. The h2h stats do not seem valid at this point in time as there is a big gap between these two sides in terms of form.

SO I am backing both teams to get in the score sheet and the visitors to get yet another win.
