Rochdale v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday's game.

10 August 2018

Posh travel to Rochdale on Saturday in Sky Bet League One action.

Peterborough United look to build on the opening day success over Bristol Rovers when they travel to the Crown Oil Arena to face Keith Hill’s Rochdale on Saturday afternoon (3pm) in Sky Bet League One action.

Both sides go into the fixture off the back of victories last week with Dale securing an eye-catching 2-1 victory at Burton Albion thanks to a brace of goals from former Peterborough United midfielder Brad Inman.

MANAGER QUOTES

“Keith Hill is someone that I get on with and someone that I admire. People may say he is an under-rated manager, but not by me, I know what a talented manager he is. He has done a wonderful job at Rochdale and personally I feel he was extremely unlucky to lose his job at Barnsley. They had an excellent win on the opening day and have some good players.

“Brad Inman scored twice on the opening day and we know that he has quality. We just felt we didn’t really have too much time to see him at close quarters so that is why the move to Rochdale was good for both parties. We will be going to Rochdale to get the three points. That is how we will set up,” Evans said.

TEAM NEWS

Posh midfielder Adam King has been recalled to parent club Swansea City after picking up an injury in pre-season during the friendly victory over Bedford Town.
