PREVIOUS MEETING AT THE GLOBE ARENA

Dale’s last trip to the Globe Arena was a victorious one, running out 2-1 winners in the 2013/14 promotion season.

A goalless first half was followed by two goals in two second half minutes for Dale. An own goal from Morecambe’s Mark Hughes broke the deadlock, before a stunning finish from Scott Hogan doubled the lead midway through the half.

Padraig Amond pulled one back for the hosts a minute before full-time, but Dale held on to move into the automatic promotion spots.
