Burton Albion v Rochdale | Pirelli Stadium, Sky Bet League One, Saturday 3rd August 2018, 3pm Kick-Off
It’s here! The opening day of the Sky Bet League One season is upon us, and sees Dale travel to Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium.
After survival on the final day of last season and a summer of signings and contract extensions, Keith Hill’s men went through pre-season with a 100% win record, having won six from six.
Burton Albion’s two-year stay in the Championship ended on the final day of last season, when Dale’s Aaron Wilbraham, then of Bolton Wanderers, scored the crucial goal which kept his side up, and sent Nigel Clough’s side back to League One.
