Peterborough United v Rochdale | ABAX Stadium, Sky Bet League One, Saturday 14th April 2018, 3pm Kick-Off
Dale are back on the road this Saturday, with a trip to face playoff hopefuls Peterborough United.
Tuesday’s defeat at home to league leaders Wigan Athletic means Dale are three points from safety heading into the final six games of the season, but with a game in hand on teams above them.
Peterborough’s 2-1 defeat at Plymouth Argyle last weekend leaves them in eighth place, but just a point off the last playoff place.
The match between the sides at the Crown Oil Arena in November ended 2-0 to Dale, thanks to goals from Calvin Andrew and Callum Camps.

Posh boss Steve Evans told his club’s official website: “I watched Rochdale on Tuesday night [against Wigan] and they could have been level or even in front at the break. They have some good players, but so do we,” said Steve Evans.
