Two of League One’s form sides go head-to-head on Saturday afternoon, as Southend host Rochdale at Roots Hall.
Southend United have been in reasonably good form of late, but fell to defeat last weekend as league leaders Sheffield United ran out 4-2 winners on the Essex coast, in a game which saw the hosts’ long unbeaten run come to an end.
Rochdale meanwhile are also in good form having won their last five League One fixtures, as well as having comfortably seen off non-league Barrow in the FA Cup 3rd round last time out.
Both these sides have play-off ambitions, and so three points from this one for either side would be massive.
