Scunthorpe vs Rochdale
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).
Rochdale have beaten both Coventry and Bury over the past seven days, bouncing back from a three-game losing streak, and they now travel to Scunthorpe United in the hope they can build on their winning streak and snatch important points at Glanford Park.
Dale have been regularly netting numbers of goals but struggled to climb the table with troubles at the back and constant slip-ups have proven costly. This will be a worry for Keith Hill, as the clean sheet at Coventry was only the first this term and building on it could be a tough task in Scunthorpe.
Scunthorpe United come into the match on the back of a narrow EFL Trophy over Wolves U21, building on a streak of two draws in a row after holding both Barnsley and Accrington Stanley to thriller draws. They have been scoring more goals in front of the home crowd and with that in mind, we do feel we should see the Iron confident as well – promising a great challenge on Saturday afternoon as well.
Scunthorpe vs Rochdale: Head-to-head
- We have seen 1-1 draws in both of the sides’ last season’s two head-to-head clashes.
- Scunthorpe have bagged just one win in their last seven matchups against Rochdale (2-1 in March 2017).

Scunthorpe vs Rochdale: Prediction
We will now back the visitors to build on their performances of recent and snatch another Draw at Glanford Park, which comes at 2.87. Neither of the sides can really boast stability over the past couple of weeks and we do feel going for shared spoils on Saturday is the best way to go about the market at this point.
We should be in for a very narrow occasion but we also feel we’ll see goals on the day so we’ll back Both teams to score at 1.70. Both come into the match on the back of wins and will now surely be motivated going forward, which promises open spaces at the back and an exciting contest on Saturday, serving as further evidence for such a bet.
