League One’s ‘Man City’ Rochdale looking to keep up their style of play with this midfield against Peterborough
Rochdale will be looking for back-to-back league wins after defeating Southend United 0-3 at Roots Hall, last time out.
The Dale have started the season in good form, however hoping to convert draws into wins, which will see them compete for a top-six finish come May.
League One fans are starting to take note of this side and manager. Rochdale plays very good football and is certainly a team on the up.
They face Peterborough on Saturday, let’s look at how their midfield may line-up…
Jordan Williams will again be at the heart of a solid Rochdale midfield. The former Liverpool youngster has been a fantastic addition to Brian Barry Murphy’s side. A tough tackler, who is also a very good footballer and one that could probably play at a level above, easily. Callum Camps is enjoying the season of his life, scoring four goals in six games so far this campaign. The midfielder is working towards a Northern Ireland call-up.
Stephen Dooley will probably start on the right side of midfield. A player that offers an attacking threat, however, is also recognised for his defensive abilities. On the left side will likely be Matt Done. A player that contributes with goals and assists, he links up well with Ian Henderson, who scores a majority of their goals.
Finally, Aaron Morley, similarly to Camps, is in the form of his life. The young midfielder has scored in his last two league games, and is enjoying that free role which allows him to get forward and express himself.
It will be a tough test at London Road, however if Rochdale play like they can, I see them getting a positive result from the game.
