The wait is almost over… as Dale get set to kick-off their 2015-16 League One campaign at Spotland.
Peterborough United are the visitors for the season opener (kick-off is 3pm), which is a repeat of last year’s opening day fixture.
Dale head into the game on the back of a successful pre-season programme, which included wins over Blackburn Rovers, Huddersfield Town and MK Dons, as well as a hard-working week in Tenerife.
Rhys Bennett (arm) and Matty Lund (knee) will miss the match through injury, while Joe Rafferty is suspended as he serves a one match ban following his sending off on the final day of last season.
The visitors are expected to be without defender Jack Baldwin.
Manager Keith Hill was on pre-match press duties. The interview is available to view on Dale Player.
