Grimsby v Rochdale Preview

THE season is finally upon us and after a few months of rumour and speculation. Town welcome play-off finalists Rochdale, to Blundell Park for the start of the 2008-09 campaign.
Rochdale are ready and willing for the start of the new campaign after nearly escaping the clutches of the bottom rung of the Football League and ending nearly 40 years of soul destroying monotony. Alas it wasn't to be, a 3-2 defeat to local rivals Stockport County resigned them to yet another year in League Two for the time being at least and hope for an end to the run is high. Pre-season has been fairly positive with draws against Bolton and Hyde United, yes people Hyde! But with wins over Southport and two wins against Marbella and Rossendale - both games in which Rochdale managed to score 6 - was the sort of stuff we ourselves would have been looking for against lower opposition during our own torrid pre-season kick abouts. It is all in the end just semantics, a good pre-season or a bad one rarely means much by September and both sets of fans are still wondering how their team will perform come Saturday.
Head to Head
Town a great record against Rochdale, the problem is it all a long time ago! Town have lost four matches on the trot to Dale and only won one of the last ten.

Rochdale 3 Grimsby 1 (Sat 05th April 2008)
Rochdale applied the final nail in the coffin to any lingering play-off hopes that the Mariners might have had with a comfortable win over Town.
