Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Rochdale have been struggling to find their form at the start of the season. The Dale have yet to record a win in the 2020/21 League Cup campaign, with the team suffering elimination to Sheffield Wednesday in the EFL Cup. The hosts failed to find the net in the last three league fixtures, and we do not believe that they are capable of beating Fleetwood on Matchday 4.
The Fishermen, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to AFC Wimbledon. Fleetwood Town are eyeing promotion to the Championship, and they should take advantage of the Dale’s slow start to the season. In their last meeting in the League One Fleetwood recorded a 3-2 win over Rochdale, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team this time out.
Highlighted Player (Callum Camps):
Callum Camps is yet another product of Rochdale football school. Born in Stockport, England on November 30, 1995, Camps came through Rochdale youth team before making his senior debut on April 13, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Port Vale.
He has been playing for the Dale ever since and it has to be noted that his most successful season was the 2016/2017 as he scored eight goals in 44 appearances in the League one for the club. Despite being born in England, Callum Caps is eligible to play for Northern Ireland national team through his grandmother, but he has only one cap with the Northern Ireland U21 team.
He made his debut with the U21 team in a 2-1 loss to Macedonia on October 13, 2015. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and attacking midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Fleetwood):
Known for their attacking style of play, Fleetwood Town are a professional football club based in Fletwood, Lancashire. The Fishermen play their home matches at Highbury Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 5,327 (2,672 seated), with the team wearing red and white shirts in home matches.
On the other hand, Fleetwood footballers are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels. The original club was founded back in 1908 under the name of Fleetwood FC and 69 years later they were re-established as Fleetwood Town F.C. In 1998 the club was renamed to Fleetwood Wanderers after the second reformation.
Legendary England footballer Joey Barton is considered one of the club’s most notable coaches. Barton, who was known for his incidents on the field, has been in charge since June 2, 2018. Neighbouring club Blackpool are regarded as one of Fleetwood’s main rivals. The Fishermen have built up rivalries with Morecambe and Preston North End as well.
