Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Rochdale play host to Wigan Athletic at their Spotland Stadium in what is expected to be a close League One game. The Dale proved their worth in a 3-3 draw with Crewe, with the team coming from three goals behind to share the spoils with the Railwaymen. The good news for the hosts is that Jake Beesley should recover in time to face the Latics. Wigan, on the other hand, have not been in action since December 29, when they recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Burton.
The Latics are desperate to grab something from the relegation six-pointer, and seeing that Rochdale looked sharp in front of goal in the 3-3 draw with Crewe, a high-scoring affair is on the cards. It has to be noted that ten goals in total have been netted in the previous two meetings between the two teams.
