Crawley Town: Preview

16 January 2015


Crawley Town are the visitors to Spotland this Saturday for Rochdale’s first home league match of 2015.

The fixture also marks the Reds’ first ever trip to Spotland.

Dale head into the fixture on the back of last weekend’s excellent stoppage time win over Bradford City, while Crawley secured a point with a 2-2 draw against MK Dons.

The Reds will be without Brian Jensen (thumb), Dean Leacock (groin), Conor Henderson (ankle) and Josh Simpson (hamstring) for the match, while it’s thought that Dale have no new injury/ illness worries.
