Dons to confirm League 1 safety against Dale
Rochdale need a point from this game to move out of the bottom three, but we think Brian Barry-Murphy’s side will come up short at Plough Lane.
Dale have significantly boosted their survival hopes in recent weeks after amassing ten points from their last four outings, although their three wins in that run have all come at Spotland.
They’ve won just one and lost five of their last eight on the road, so AFC Wimbledon appeal here at a shade of odds-against after winning four of their last five matches overall.
The Dons have also won four of their last five home starts and beat Rochdale 0-1 in November’s reverse fixture, so Mark Robinson’s side are tipped to get the victory they need to confirm their own safety.
In the correct score market, we’re predicting a 2-1 result as the hosts have kept just four clean sheets from 21 here, while Dale have netted in all but seven of their 21 away trips this season.
