NIGEL Clough’s Brewers will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to four games when they face Rochdale at the Crown Oil Arena.


11 matches have been played between Rochdale and the Brewers, with Albion winning six of them.

Rochdale have come out on top in the two most recent meetings, including a 2-1 win over Nigel Clough’s side at the Pirelli Stadium on the opening day of this season, despite a strong performance from the home side.



The Brewers could be without a host of key players for the game against Rochdale. Marvin Sordell, Liam Boyce, Kyle McFadzean, Jamie Allen, Stephen Quinn, Scott Fraser and John Brayford are all doubts for the fixture, with Nigel Clough also speculating that there may be other players currently carrying knocks.



Bristol City youngster Rory Holden could be in-line for his debut after the forward joined the club on-loan.



Scott Duncan has mostly refereed in the Championship this season, taking charge of 16 games and issuing 52 yellow cards, five reds and awarded two penalties.

In his sole League One game this season, Duncan showed six yellow cards.

Nik Barnard and Alix Pashley are the assistant referees, while Anthony Backhouse is the fourth official.



Tickets are now off sale at the Pirelli Stadium for the match but can be purchased at the Crown Oil Arena on the day of the game.

Prices are as follows: 

Adults: £22

Seniors (65+): £16

Young Person (21 and under): £16

Junior: £5

Infants (2 and under) free*

* Infants (2 and under) tickets must be obtained from the RAFC Ticket Office before going to the turnstiles. 

Ambulant disabled supporters pay the relevant price (as above) according to their age band category, with carer free of charge.

Card payments can be taken at the main reception ticket office. It should be noted that Rochdale have  separate turnstiles, meaning that if a family (adult and child) want to go through the same turnstile, they will have to buy a ticket at the ticket office.
