Rochdale to Win
It’s derby day at The Crown Oil Arena this weekend, where Rochdale will be relishing the prospect of getting one over their struggling local rivals Oldham. The Latics are rooted to the bottom of the League Two table after eight matches and on Saturday they visit a Rochdale side that has won three and drawn two of their last five assignments in the division. The Dale should be able to rub salt into their neighbour’s wounds in Greater Manchester, so back them to win.
Both Teams to Score – No
Oldham haven’t scored a goal for four successive games and their lack of punch in the final third could be evident again when they make the short hop to play Rochdale on Saturday. The Dale are targeting their third clean sheet on the bounce at home this weekend, indeed, they have recorded three shutouts in their last five matches at The Crown Oil Arena overall. With that strong defensive run a factor, backing both teams not to score appeals at the prices on offer.
Rochdale -1 Goals
A bet on Rochdale -1 in the match handicap market could return a profit at very generous odds this weekend. Oldham have looked desperately poor at the back in recent outings and the Latics conceded a whopping 13 times in their last four fixtures without notching a single effort in reply. The Dale will hope to cut through Oldham’s injury-depleted ranks with similar ease on Saturday and they look a solid bet to cover the handicap.

Rochdale Team News
Rochdale are set to be without on-loan defender Corey O'Keefe this weekend, while Sam Graham is also rated as a doubt at the back. Robbie Stockdale's charges are handily placed just outside League Two's playoff positions at present, though the right swing of results over the weekend could launch The Dale into the division's top three.
Oldham Team News
Oldham have a number of players out this weekend including Ouss Cisse, Jamie Hopcutt, Jack Stobbs and Harrison McGahey. There are also concerns about the availability of Danny Rogers, Jordan Clarke, Sam Hart, Alan Sheehan, Nicky Adams and Dylan Bahamboula. The Latics have lost six of their first eight League Two fixtures this term and they are propping up the rest in the standings as a result.
