Rochdale are back in action at Spotland on Tuesday evening.


Sheffield United are the visitors for the rearranged League One fixture from last month. The original game was postponed due to both Dale’s and the Blades’ involvement in the FA Cup.

 

Dale head into match on the back of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Chesterfield, while Sheffield United were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Coventry City.

LAST MEETING

Sheffield United 1-0 Rochdale: September 13th 2014


Sheffield United were 1-0 winners over Rochdale when the two sides met at Bramall Lane earlier in the season.

 

Dale were beaten by a cruel deflection seven minutes from time. Keith Hill’s side had been comfortable throughout a goalless first half, and were inches away from taking the lead in the second half when Ian Henderson struck the bar with superb half volley, but they were dealt a blow when Jamal Campbell-Ryce’s cross was deflected up over Conrad Logan and into the back of the net.

 

Dale XI on the day: Logan, Rafferty, Eastham, O’Connell, Tanser, Bennett, Allen, Dawson, Vincenti, Henderson, Done. Subs: Diba, Lancashire, Andrew, Hery, Fenelon, Kennedy and Bunney.
