Preview: Coventry City

30 January 2015


Following two successive home fixtures, Rochdale are back on the road this weekend as they head to Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena.

Those home games saw Dale record a 4-1 win over Crawley Town in the league, before exiting the FA Cup at the fourth round stage following defeat to Premier League side Stoke City on Monday evening.

The Sky Blues head into the game on the back of a goalless draw at Yeovil Town’s Huish Park.

Coventry City Manager Stephen Pressley has bolstered his squad ahead of the fixture with the loan signing of striker Dominic Samuel from Reading.
