Preview | Oxford United v Dale

27 April 2018

Oxford United v Rochdale | Kassam Stadium, Sky Bet League One, Saturday 28th April 2018, 3pm Kick-Off

Dale’s final away game of the 2017/18 seasons sees them travel to Oxford United on Saturday.

Tuesday’s point against Plymouth Argyle moved Dale out of the relegation zone for the first time since December.

Two wins from their last three games has propelled Oxford away from the drop zone, and they require just a point to be absolutely sure of League One football next season.

The match between the sides earlier in the season at the Crown Oil Arena ended goalless.
