Match Preview | Rochdale v Posh

A look ahead to Saturday's game at Rochdale.

24 November 2017

Gwion Edwards will miss Saturday's game with Rochdale due to suspension.

Peterborough United travel to the Crown Oil Stadium to face Rochdale in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon (3pm) looking to build on the 2-1 success over Portsmouth at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Jack Marriott took his tally to 13 for the season with a close-range strike from a wonderful Marcus Maddison cross and the latter put in another devilish delivery to secure the points, Pompey’s Matt Clarke flicking the ball past his own keeper Luke McGee.

Rochdale have been inconsistent for the majority of this season but are excellent on their own patch and will prove difficult opponents for Posh as they go in search of back to back League One wins to keep up the pressure on the top seven.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of Gwion Edwards who is serving a one-match ban after picking up his fifth booking of the season in midweek. Junior Morias (thigh) and Liam Shephard (groin) are ruled out while Ricky Miller is expected to be named on the bench.

Rochdale forward Matthew Gillam will be hopeful of retaining his place in the starting XI for Saturday's game. Academy graduate Gillam marked his maiden league start on Tuesday with the opening goal in the match against Charlton. Keith Keane remains sidelined as the midfielder continues his recovery from surgery. Dale, who suffered a second successive defeat as they were beaten 2-1, have won only one of their last nine league games. Brad Inman cannot play against his parent club due to the terms of the loan agreement.

FROM THE POSH CAMP

“Rochdale are a good side, they have a good management team who will have them well organised and it will be another tough game for us. We are striving as a group to improve in everything that we do. We will play well together and perform averagely together, and there have been examples of both of those levels this season,” Posh assistant manager David Oldfield said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“They’re very creative. They are a very spontaneous, skilful side, and they’ve always been that way. The way they have done things under Darragh MacAnthony and Barry Fry, a succession of managers have all tried to produce the same type of football, and they’ve been very successful doing it. They’ve also been very good at selling players, and they’ve been very successful in getting promoted from League Two all the way through to the Championship and they’re trying to do that again. They invest in youthful players and they’ve got a good model,” Rochdale boss Keith Hill said.

Two goals in the first half see Posh drop down to eighth in the Sky Bet League One table.

Peterborough United slipped to a 2-0 defeat the Crown Oil Arena against Rochdale with two goals in the first half condemning Grant McCann’s men to a frustrating defeat.

The home side were dealt a blow on seven minutes with Matt Done replaced by Jordan Slew, the former Sheffield United man limping out with what appeared to be a lower back injury. Calvin Andrew nodded a header wide of the upright moments later after a driven cross into the box.

Posh felt they should have been awarded a penalty kick on 18 minutes when Maddison was upended in the box by Rathbone, but the referee waved away the protests. Slew was cautioned for a foul on Doughty before Andrew fired well over the bar from 25-yards.

Maddison was denied at the near post by Lillis after a swift Posh counter-attack led by Marriott. Grant McCann’s men fell behind on 32 minutes as ANDREW did well to turn his man and curl past O’Malley from around 10-yards.

The lead was doubled on 36 minutes as CAMPS fired a free-kick into the net after Bunney had been upended by Da Silva Lopes on the edge of the penalty area. Lloyd fired wide from distance on 43 minutes after a poor defensive header from Henderson. Two minutes of added time was signalled by the fourth official.

Grant McCann made a triple substitution at the interval with Chris Forrester, Idris Kanu and Ricky Miller introduced for Doughty, Lloyd and Anderson. Lillis made a decent stop to deny Kanu after he met a Da Silva Lopes cross with a first time effort.

Henderson scooped an effort over the bar from a corner kick on 61 minutes. Rathbone was finally cautioned on 66 minutes after about his fifth foul of the game. Miller saw a right-footed shot gathered by Lillis by his near post on 73 minutes after being picked out by Da Silva Lopes.

O’Malley did well to beat a curling Henderson effort wide of the target on 77 minutes. Forrester had a go at the other end on 79 minutes but his deflected effort was comfortable in the end for Lillis. Miller fired straight at Lillis after a neat one two on 85 minutes.

Rochdale: Lillis, Rafferty, McNulty, McGahey, Andrew, Camps, Rathbone, Done (sub Slew 7min, sub Gillam 60min)), Daniels, Bunney (sub Ntlhe 74min), Henderson. Unused subs: Davies, Moore, Cannon, Kitching.

Posh: O’Malley, Baldwin, Hughes, Taylor, Grant, Da Silva Lopes, Anderson (sub Forrester 46min), Doughty (sub Kanu 46min), Lloyd (sub Miller 46min), Maddison, Marriott. Unused subs: Bond, Tafazolli, Penny, Chettle.
