Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Rochdale did well to make amends for a 4-1 loss to Peterborough, with the team rolling over Wigan 5-0 in their last league match. The Dale have been producing much better showings on the road than at home in the first half of the season, with the team recording no more than one win at their Spotland Stadium. Rochdale produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, and they are surely capable of matching the Gills on home soil.
Gillingham, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to Doncaster and Accrington in the previous two league fixtures, meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Greater Manchester. A man to watch in the home team will be pacey winger Alex Newby, who scored a brace in the midweek clash. In their last meeting at Spotland Stadium the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
