Big injury crisis for guests that already played with a front line composed by 40 years old Wibraham and 16 years old Baah at Gillingham.
Already coming from three consecutive defeats - and eight ones in last nine matches - Rochdale has key def. Williams ( 22) suspended, McNulty ( def.10) and McNaughty ( def.0) out, Rathbone ( midf.15+3 2g) injuried various time this season and shouldn't fit for this match as Morley ( midf. 13+5 3g), topscorer Henderson ( 9g), Done ( midf.12+5). Norrington-Davies ( def.19) is doubtful, too.
Accrington in good form, only half of home matches won, but they have a good attack (23g scored9 and defense ( 13g suffered), three players with few minutes ( Angol, Kee, Baker-Richardson) out for months, topscorer Bishop (10g) doubtful.
But also if Bishop will be out, hosts should win here against a team in freefall, second consecutive away match after a long trip for last one, only 16 professional players available, part of them not in best conditions and already in last rounds forced to call youngsters and with players out of their natural roles.
