Scunthorpe United vs Rochdale
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).

Rochdale’s ambitions of saving the third class status have seen a massive blow on Tuesday evening when the team fell 0-2 at home to fellow strugglers Fleetwood Town. Keith Hill’s men have thus lost the momentum after four straight games without a loss and they will come into a very tough clash with the promotional contenders Scunthorpe United six points shy of the safe zone.

The good news for the Dale is Scunthorpe’s form which has been anything but impressive of late. The Iron are in danger of dropping out of the playoffs spots after being winless in seven consecutive matches in League One. The hosts are now just two points above the Posh in seventh and a failure here could seriously complicate their push for the higher division football.

Graham Alexander’s main problem lies in his team’s lack of meticulousness at the back since the Iron have indeed been super easy to break down lately. The hosts have shipped two or more goals on eight separate occasions in last nine league matches ruining a decent job done by the attacking line at the other end.

This will be the music t6o the eras of Rochdale’s talisman Ian Henderson who is looking to take his league tally to double digits after failing to score in last four league games.
