Fleetwood v Rochdale Predictions

Saturday afternoon League One action sees midtable Fleetwood host a Rochdale side that are scrapping for survival.

The hosts look set for a somewhat underwhelming midtable finish after making it into the play-offs last term, with experienced EFL coach Simon Grayson - who has promotion from this division with four different clubs on his CV - likely to use the relatively low-stakes remainder of the season to assess his squad and what work needs doing to get his side competing further up the table next season.

After back-to-back defeats, Fleetwood returned to winning ways on Easter Monday by going to relegation scrappers AFC Wimbledon and coming away with a hard-fought narrow 1-0 win. Grayson's men denied the hosts a single shot on target, although they had 10 wayward attempts, and eventually found their match-winning breakthrough in the 88th minute after Dons goalkeeper Nik Tzanev inexplicably passed the ball straight to Fleetwood substitute Barrie McKay, who made no mistake with exploiting the error.

Rochdale, meanwhile, have only lost one of their last four matches, but remain at the foot of the table after picking up just one point from two games over Easter weekend - Monday's 0-0 draw against playoff-chasing Ipswich. In spite of occupying 24th spot, there's still plenty to fight for over the run-in in the still-congested bottom six; they're only four points adrift of safety and have a game or in hand on the sides they're chasing.

The strugglers have only actually lost half (19 of 38) of their games this season, a lower ratio than their competitors, but their problem has not been picking up three points often enough and converting tight, competitive games into wins - as was the case in the goalless game against Ipswich. Only Shrewsbury and Sunderland have drawn more than their tally of 12, but no side in the third tier has fewer wins - just three.

But one of those wins actually came with a shock 2-1 home victory in the reverse fixture back in October; they can complete an unlikely league double, revenge for last term when Fleetwood came from behind to beat them at home (2-1) and away (3-2).

FLEETWOOD TO WIN AND BTTS @ 4/1

Fleetwood Team News

There was more than a touch of fortune in Barrie McKay's match-winner last time out, but the Scottish winger - who is on loan from Swansea - will hope it was enough to convince his manager to put him in the starting XI here, with a severe lack of goals following the mid-season departures of Ched Evans and Paddy Madden - who together scored 12 of Fleetwood's 42 league goals this season - while Callum Camps (top scorer with nine goals) will likely remain one of the first names on the teamsheet as a right-sided attacker in midfield.

Experienced centre-half Charlie Mulgrew hasn't been in the last few matchday squads, with Callum Connolly alongside young pairing Harrison Holgate (20) and James Hill (19) in a back three, with the experienced Alex Cairns between the sticks as they look to keep a second successive clean sheet.

OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 11/10

Rochdale Team News

No League One side has conceded more goals than Rochdale's tally of 69 so Brian Barry-Murphy will have been pleased to see his side keep a rare clean sheet last time out against Ipswich, and is expected to keep the same backline of Eoghan O'Connell, Haydon Roberts and Gabriel Osho, who kept goalkeeper Jay Lynch well protected last time out - not required to make a single save - although any neutrals watching may hope for more than the total of 0 shots on target their last game featured from both teams.

30-year-old forward Matthew Lund - Rochdale's top scorer with 11 goals - has been sidelined for the past six weeks and isn't expected to make it back for this one, meaning Jake Beesley and Kwadwo Baah - who have four and three goals respectively this season - are likely to start up top together.
