Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s Sky Bet League One fixture against Bolton Wanderers.
The programme starts with a front cover image of Aaron Wilbraham, a former Bolton striker who is currently the toast of Rochdale after his FA Cup equaliser against Newcastle last Saturday.
Manager Brian Barry-Murphy previews the afternoon’s game and discusses how he believes his squad is now returning to fitness and form after a difficult early winter period.
After that the programme is packed with features, including:
