Dale take on Peterborough United this weekend and as always, TVOS gives us the stats ahead of the fixture.
* Saturday will be the 55th league game between Dale and Peterborough United and the 27th at Spotland
* Dale have won seven of the previous 26 home fixtures, losing 11 times and drawing eight
* Dale’s last home win over Posh came in November 2017 when Calvin Andrew and Callum Camps scored within three first half minutes in the 2-0 success
* That is our joint-best win versus Posh, adding to the 2-0 home victory in August 2015
* Dale have never scored more than three goals in a game against Peterborough
* They have achieved that feat only twice at home, winning 3-2 in a famous league match on this very weekend in 1987 and 3-2 in the first round of the FA Cup in November 2002
* Dale have lost their last four games against United by a 3-16 aggregate
* Dale were at home to Peterborough on the opening day of the season in 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17…
* …and their first home game of the 2018/19 campaign was also against Posh
* From 1983/84 to 1985/86, Dale recorded three consecutive 2-1 home wins over United
* Those victories were followed by the aforementioned 3-2 success in March 1987, giving Dale four consecutive home wins over Posh in the mid-1980s
* The 2-1 win in September 1985, courtesy of two Frank Gamble goals, saw Dale replace Posh at the top of Division Four
* 2-1 is the most common scoreline in this fixture, having been achieved four times by Dale and six times by United
* Dale lost five consecutive home league matches to Peterborough from 1989/90 to 2007/08
* Dale’s leading appearance-maker against Posh is Gary Jones, with 11 games in his two spells at the club

Despite taking a 17th minute lead through Ian Henderson’s penalty, Dale eventually succumbed to a 4-1 defeat when Peterborough were last at Spotland in August 2018.
“Random Jock” Jason Cummings struck the equaliser, before Mark O’Hara (2) and Matt Godden inflicted further damage on the home side.
