FC Halifax Town will make the short trip to Rochdale on Saturday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off. 

It will be 5th vs 9th at the Crown Oil Arena with Dale just a point above the Shaymen after 6 games.

Town have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 1 away from home so far with a point away at Solihull which followed a 2-1 win at local neighbours Oldham Athletic.

Dale have the same record on home soil, last tie out they drew 2-2 at home to Bromley, beat Eastleigh 2-0 but lost 1-0 on the opening day of the season to Ebbsfleet United.

There will be a couple of familar faces in the Rochdale squad with Devante Rodney and Harvey Gilmour now playing for Dale.

Their top goalscorer is Tyrese Sinclair with 5 goals in 6 games, 3 of them have come from the penalty spot.

It will be Town fans first trip to Spotland since 2001 when Halifax Town AFC lost 2-0 in September 2001

Tickets can be purchased online before the game, alternatively you can purchase from the ticket office on the day but Rochdale are advising that there is likely to be long queues so if you can purchase in advance, it will save time to access the stadium.
