Has been confirmed Tuesday 10th April - the night we play Wigan at Spotland. The sensible option from a commercial point of view would be to play our game 24hrs later on the Wednesday. Certainly any floating Dale or even Wigan fans could be put off coming to our game.
Quite remarkably Saturday 25th November 2017! Albeit we've only played 4 home games since then (3 draws,1 defeat).
I'm sure if the team plays anywhere near the last 2 performances away from home then this record will be put to bed tomorrow night. Need to keep the momentum going if we want to have a chance of the great escape.
Fair play to Hilly for bringing Bradden back into the team - whether it's because he's been looking good in training or what? But I don't think many fans would have automatically thought he'd be getting back in the starting X1 and especially not at the expense of Kitching who had looked good in the midfield 3 of himself,Cannon and Camps. Maybe Hill thought Kitching needed a rest after being involved so much recently - picking Inman looks inspired with him being involved in 3 of the goals in this last week.
I guess the best result for us would be a draw? Or Oldham win meaning psychologically we stay off the bottom spot regardless of our result at Rotherham. Both teams have had an upturn in form in recent weeks so it's a hard one to call - although I think bury haven't beaten them at gigg in an awful long time.
In full here. Just have to cancel the 2 pop up pages and it plays the 3rd time. From when we equalised to Cannon hitting the post we play some quite superb football against a Premier League team. Take that into league 1 and we will start winning games.
Obviously Walsall's best player - and he's bang on form scoring a hat trick on Saturday. Should Keith ignore this and just go out and play our own game? Let them worry about us - or change the team/formation around completely to accommodate Ollie Rathbone to do a man marking job on him. I think he'll do the latter - but I'd rather just go for it with our best team/formation (in my opinion the X1 who started v Spurs and MK Dons).
Paul Tierney from Wigan Lancashire. Also Dale will be involved in a VAR game for the first time ever.

I wonder if it will change Spurs approach and team selection v Dale now? They have a real chance of winning the FA Cup with the favourites now knocked out. I wonder if they'll now take no chances and start with their big guns - or trust their 2nd string to do the job at home?
Surely these have to be the spine of our team from now till the end of season? No disrespect to Wiseman but McGahey can't be dropped again. If we'd had this set up all season there is no way we would be bottom. If only the season could start all over again.
