Preview | Dale v Oldham Athletic

17 April 2018

Rochdale v Oldham Athletic | Tuesday 17th April, Sky Bet League One, Crown Oil Arena, 7.45pm Kick-Off

Rochdale return to the Crown Oil Arena on Tuesday night, against near neighbours Oldham Athletic.

Following Saturday’s ten-man win over Peterborough United, Dale are just a point behind Latics, who conceded a late penalty in their 1-1 draw with Gillingham.

A win for Keith Hill's side would see them leapfrog Oldham and also Walsall, whilst a win for Latics would keep Dale three points behind the Saddlers with four games remaining.

OPPOSITION VIEW

Oldham boss Richie Wellens says he is treating the game as a cup final.

“For me it’s like a cup final,” said Wellens. “If you win, you take a massive step towards what you want to achieve. If you lose then obviously it’s a massive dent.”
