Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wycombe Wanderers will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Portsmouth when they take on Rochdale at Crown Oil Arena. The Chairboys aim to keep their hopes of securing automatic promotion to the Championship alive and they surely want to take advantage of the fact that Rochdale suffered a dip in form. The Dale have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding nine goals in total in previous three league fixtures.
Wycombe made a promising start to the season and we are positive that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Saturday afternoon. A man to watch in the away team will be Fred Onyendinma, who has netted two goals so far this term and veteran Adebayo Akinfenwa should not be written off as well as he has been in a fine form at the start of the season.
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 (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
