Dale can use cup to get on a roll in League One

Rochdale v Morecambe

Rochdale are arguably the best team in League One and considering they are sixth in the table, I think they are incredible value to win the division. They are certainly an each-way punt.

First up is an FA Cup first-round replay at home to Morecambe and again I'm surprised they are not a bit shorter.

They are unbeaten in five whereas Morecambe have only won one of their last five, and that was at home to whipping boys Barnet.



Match in Focus


Doncaster v Bradford

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Doncaster have won only two of 12 home matches against teams currently above them in League One
Expert verdict
Two teams struggling for wins meet at the Keepmoat Stadium and it could pay to back the draw when Doncaster host Bradford in a Yorkshire derby. Neither team is easy to trust with Donny slipping dangerously close to the relegation zone, sitting 17th only four points from trouble, while Bradford are down to 11th, seven points off the playoff pace.
