    Sheff Utd on Friday night due to Tigers being at home on TV Saturday, why we couldn't play Sunday instead I don't know

    Might be something in the contract of the stadium that the football plays before the rugby. I know that's what happens with ourselves.

    Oops, my bad. I’ve been to Leicester and seen both stadiums so i should know this.

    I’d happily take the Friday game and let you have the Monday.

    We play on Tuesday and Friday the week after, so we requested it to be Friday rather than Sunday.

    Rochdale have given us 3,600 out of their 10,000 stadium, which is absolutely insane, but nobody is complaining :laugh:

    Cannot wait for this one, should be a great away day.

    That's standard for Rochdale against anyone. Speaking from far too many experiences!

    We've got a week between games so hopefully we play a full strength team for this and they is a positive response to the Man C debacle.

    Think Sheff Utd will prove a trickier test this time around than when we rolled them at Bramall Lane back in August.

    That said it depends how much quality they have on the ball as playing on decent pitches is what we're all about and unless the weather is atrocious (like Everton away) then we're guaranteed a quality surface at home.

    Four of the players that started in that game back in August departed in January all on loan, with view to permanent deals. We've added more quality too, however I would expect Sheff Utd to line up stronger than they did back then too.

    Prediction: Close game, BTTS and over 2.5. 3-1 Leicester with us getting a late finishing goal on the break.
