ROCHDALE v WIGAN ATHLETIC
SKY BET LEAGUE ONE
TUESDAY 10 APRIL 2018
CROWN OIL ARENA
KICK-OFF 7.45PM

PREVIEW

Latics head to the Crown Oil Arena with an opportunity to extend the gap above third place Shrewsbury Town to five points, but a tough test against Rochdale stands in Paul Cook's side's way, with Keith Hill's Dale fighting for survival at the foot of the Sky Bet League One table.

A 5-1 victory and a Will Grigg hat-trick against MK Dons helped Latics back into the automatic promotion places and kept them two points behind leaders Blackburn Rovers with a game in hand, whilst Dale drew 3-3 at home to Portsmouth to move up into 21st place. Hill's men are now one point from safety with a game in hand over 20th place AFC Wimbledon.
