Preview, Team News, and Rochdale vs Bradford Lineups

Rochdale

The home team's season is coming down to the wire as they are preparing themselves for the possibility that they will be playing their football in the lower division next season. Rochdale lies bottom last in the standings and things are not looking all too positive for the hosts. Even though they won two out of their last three games earning seven points out of a possible nine, they are still six points away from safety with five games remaining before the end of the season.

Probable lineup: O'Donnell, Keohane, Taylor, Ebanks-Landell, Dodgson, Lloyd-McGoldrick, Brierley, Kelly, Bughail-Mellor, Odoh, Henderson.

Bradford

Bradford's great streak is at ten games without a loss, they are holding onto a top-six position in League Two, but they still have a legitimate chance of breaking a top-three barrier, and that is the ranking that would take the team directly to the higher league.

Probable lineup: Lewis, Ridehalgh, Crichlow-Noble, Stubbs, Halliday, Smallwood, Gilliead, Chapman, Walker, Banks, Cook.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Andy Cook

Having the best striker on its roster gave Bradford huge leverage in its quest for a top-three finish. Andy Cook has been nothing short of terrific by scoring 24 times and assisting on six occasions this term. Cook scored at least a goal in four out of his six appearances.
