Oldham Athletic v Rochdale: Sky Bet League One, Saturday 18th November, 3pm Kick-Off

Dale return to action on Saturday with a short trip to neighbours Oldham Athletic.

The sides are separated by one point and two league places going into Saturday’s match, which will be the first game for both sides in ten days due to last weekend’s international break.

Keith Hill’s men are unbeaten in six matches, with just one defeat in the previous 12 games.

Latics have had an upturn in fortunes since Richie Wellens took over as interim manager in September, before being appointed on a full-time basis last month. They've lost two in ten games under Wellens, with the two defeats coming in their last three outings. 

A good run of results has seen them climb out of the relegation zone, and they currently sit 18th in Sky Bet League One.



Quotes: "We expect nothing and we’re prepared to fight for everything," Keith Hill.
