Rochdale may be struggling at the foot of League One but they could do their survival chances the power of good as they head to a team with an absolutely shocking home record.
Hartlepool have lost eight out of twelve on their own patch and are also in poor form generally with six defeats in their last seven so confidence is undoubtedly low at Victoria Park.
Rochdale aren’t in outstanding shape themselves of course but three consecutive draws suggest that caretaker-boss Chris Beech has steadied the ship and in loan-striker Daniel Bogdanovic they have a player capable of scoring goals at that level.
Another player that could find the net is Carlisle forward Francois Zoko. The Ivorian striker has found a rich vein of form, netting five times in five outings and bet365 rate him at 15/8 to get on the scoresheet at some point against Leyton Orient, a price that appeals far more than the evens available via for a home win.
Doubling up Zoko and Bogdanovic in Boylesports’ anytime scorer market meanwhile, pays at a mouth watering 15/2.
