Accrington vs Rochdale preview
Last Updated: 08/04/19 3:05pm
Accrington boss John Coleman once again appears to have a full squad to choose from as he prepares for Tuesday's Sky Bet League One home clash with Rochdale.
Stanley came through the 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday seemingly unscathed. The result halted a run of three successive losses for Coleman's men.
Accrington sit 17th in the table, two points clear of the relegation zone with six games left to play.
It remains to be seen whether Zach Clough or Rekeil Pyke will be fit enough to be involved for Rochdale. Forwards Clough and Pyke have been sidelined for the last four and seven games respectively.
Dale - who are second bottom, a point adrift of safety - were beaten 2-1 at home by Sunderland on Saturday. That was their first match with Brian Barry-Murphy as permanent boss. They had previously gone four games unbeaten with him in caretaker charge.
Accrington are winless in their six home league games with Rochdale (D1 L5), losing each of the last five games after drawing their first encounter in August 2006.
Rochdale have won 10 of their last 12 league meetings with Accrington (L2), including each of the last three, winning 1-0 in the reverse fixture.
Accrington Stanley have lost their last four home league games in succession; they have only lost five in a row on home soil once before in the Football League, doing so in April 2010.
After losing four straight league matches between February and March, Rochdale have since only lost one of their last five (W2 D2), although that defeat was their last such game at home to Sunderland (1-2).
Accrington have conceded 15 headed goals in League One this season; only opponents Rochdale (20) have conceded more.
