Rochdale v Manchester City Under-21s | Crown Oil Arena, Leasing.Com Trophy Northern Group F, Wednesday 11th September 2019, 7.45pm Kick-Off
Dale get their Leasing.com Trophy campaign underway at home to Manchester City’s Under-21 side at the Crown Oil Arena on Wednesday night.
It will be Dale’s first match in 11 days, since the 3-0 win at Southend United at the end of August.
The other two teams in Northern Group F, Bolton Wanderers and Bradford City, played out a 1-1 draw in their first game, with Bradford claiming the extra bonus point via the penalty shootout.
Barry-Murphy says the Leasing.com Trophy has been a great tournament for Dale over recent years.
The Dale boss has confirmed he will play a number of young players in Wednesday night’s game, and has also offered an injury update.
