Team News, Analysis, and Preview of Rochdale vs Stockport Match

Rochdale

Rochdale has dropped down to the bottom of the table and there is a significant danger of the team being cut off from safety even in this early stage. The Rochdale-Stockport tips for this match expect the problems for the bottom outfit to continue even further, as manager Jim Bentley goes in search of his first win against Stockport. There are no injury concerns for the hosts.

It will be a tough task to avoid relegation with their subpar goalscoring efforts that stand at only 25 strikes from 32 fixtures. The defence has not helped their cause with the second-worst goals conceded record with 49 goals allowed.

Stockport
