The first leg was a unsurprising 0-0 draw as Conference pitches can often be tough to play on with some sides even purposely making their pitch bad quality so it's tough to play on. This time around Rochdale are at home so will feel much more comfortable playing on a better quality pitch which should allow much better passing of the ball.
In the first match Rochdale played a strong team which shows their ambition in this competition and I'd expect a similar line up tonight. Jack O'Connell will miss out as Blackburn have refused permission for him to play, Rhys Bennett is expected to remain sidelined and Joe Bunney did not train last week because of illness. Top scorer Henderson should be in the side looking to add to his tally of 9.
Rochdale currently sit in 6th place in L1 and their last match was a 4-1 thrashing over Colchester.
Aldershot currently lie in 16th place in the Conference with fear of relegation a growing possibility. Their last match was an FA Trophy defeat to a tiny club in Burgess Hill Town, a home loss too. This defeat means they are winless in their last 4 games.
They also have injury worries for this game with Josh Scott and Joe Oastler out with a broken metatarsal and fractured cheekbone respectively.
Joe N'Guessan (ankle), Anthony Tonkin (calf) and Damon Lathrope (groin) all look set to miss out.
The winner will have a home tie against Nottingham Forest in round 3.
