Refwatch: Crewe Alexandra v Rochdale
Friday, 23rd Apr 2021 12:00 by TVOS
The familiar figure of Andy Haines will referee Dale’s return fixture at Crewe on Saturday, three months after he oversaw Alex’s visit to Spotland.
On that afternoon Dale came back from 3-0 down at half-time to draw 3-3, although our precarious position in the League One relegation zone means we would prefer less excitement and a better result this time around.
Mr Haines will take charge of his 34th Dale match on Saturday, with 31 of them being at Spotland!
The last time we saw him on the road was at Shrewsbury in August 2017 where Dale lost 3-2 despite Steven Davies scoring two penalties.
Andy’s most memorable Dale appointment was our promotion-clinching 1-0 win over Northampton in April 2010, while he has refereed us four times against Chesterfield, one of them being the 4-3 win at Saltergate 13 years ago when David Perkins scored a fine hat-trick.
