I simply can't belive that they won't relegate at the end. The last 6 matches for the team at home ended with 2 wins , 2 draws and 2 losses.
The last home match for the team , against Walsall ended 3:3 and that match was the key for survive for Rochdale. If they had win it there was going to be a good chance of survivng , but with that draw i think the players will be facing a lack of confidence for tonight match.
It's a must win for the team , but i don't think that they will take someting from the strong Sheffield. Team is with the worst attacking line , scoring only 39 goals this season from 41 matches.
defender Kevin Long is doubtful having been replaced in the first-half of Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Yeovil Town.
Sheffield on the other hand are in heavy battle for promotion in the Championship for the next season. The team fights alongside their city rivals Sheffield Wednesday for a direct place in the upper league. With the victory that Wednesday achieved yesterday , they now lead 1 point to United .
Last 6 away matches for United ended with 3 wins 2 losses and 1 draw. However the team is on streak with 4 straight wins and i belive tonight they will get another one.
The team is with the best attacking line in the league - scoring 80 goals , and they have the top goalscorer of the league - Chad Evans with 32 goals so far. He will lead the attack tonight once again.
Richard Cresswell is expected to partner 32-goal marksman Ched Evans, despite suffering with a broken nose and fractured wrist. James Beattie and Will Hoskins should be back on the team after they've missed the win against Bournemouth in the weekend.
Important match for both teams, mostly for Rochdale, but i don't see how they can take anyting. I think Sheffield are way better team , and go for a mid stake on AH .
