Rochdale v Saints Preview

Rochdale will be confident of achieving something after beatint Saints at St Mary's earlier in the season.

aints like Dale are on a great run and will have the confidence of 7 wins in an unbeaten game run. On top of that they know a victory opens up a gap between them and the third team in the league.

Vital Quotes:

Rochdale Team News:

Manager Keith Hill may decide to shuffle his players around as he prepares to take on inform Southampton after his side lost their recent unbeaten run at Colchester..

Player to watch: Gary Jones

Free scoring midfielder Gary could be the man to put Saints under pressure again as he did scoring Dale's second goal at St Mary's.

Southampton Team News:

Lallana and Stephens could both return after minor injuries and it is hoped Harding and Butterfield recover from knocks received at Leyton.

Player to watch: Jose Fonte

Jose has been an important member of our defence of late as normal but he does seem to be getting even better. Will have a big part to play.

Match Facts & Stats

The two teams have not met for more than 20 years and have only met three times at Rochdale.

ochdale having won twice and lost just the once may feel the stats favour them.

Ref Watch:

Mr M Haywood officiates Mr G Hilton & Mr P Marsden assist Mr R Bartlett is 4th official

Match Prediction:

Rochdale 1-2 Southampton. I foresee a tight predominantly defensive game with Saints firepower coming out on top eventually.
