Wycombe vs Rochdale Prediction

Much to the dismay of the Wycombe faithful, the hosts have been dropping points rapidly in their last five League One games. The home team have garnered no more than one measly point from a possible fifteen and have just two wins to boast of from their past seven as well.

Be that as it may, Wycombe are still one of the top two sides on the table, and are currently playing second fiddle to Rotherham only on goal difference.

On the other hand, Rochdale completed back to back wins for the first time since September by taking down Accrington on the road and then Bolton at home. However, the visitors returned to losing ways earlier last week after Newcastle United took them out of the FA Cup with a 4-1 scorecard.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have not looked sharp in their outings this season. Miserably, they have admitted defeat in three of their past five trips on the road.

In sharp contrast, Wycombe have just been too hot to handle at home. They have stumbled just once in front of the home crowd so far, and have branded as the best home team in the cluster as well.

Taking into account that the hosts made no mistake in picking up the win in the reverse fixture too, Rochdale can rule out any hopes of securing the bragging rights in this one.

Furthermore, twenty-four of the thirty-two goals for the hosts this term, have come from their clashes at this stadium. Meanwhile, Rochdale have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet either. Interestingly, they have scored more goals on the road than at home.

Considering that half of their last of four h2h meetings here have also witnessed over 2.5 goals on the charts, expect both teams to rack up the goals tally in this one.
