Preview: Gillingham v Dale

12 January 2018

Gillingham v Rochdale: Sky Bet League One, Saturday 13th January, 3pm Kick-Off

Dale make a return to Sky Bet League One action this weekend, with a long trip south to take on Gillingham.

The two sides have already met this season, when Dale ran out convincing 3-0 winners at the Crown Oil Arena.

That proved to be Adrian Pennock’s final game in charge of the club, and after a four-game spell under caretaker Peter Taylor, Gills appointed Steve Lovell in October.

He has overseen an upturn in fortunes, with six league wins under his stewardship moving them up to 16th in the table.
