Newcastle vs Rochdale Predictions

Newcastle’s fine start to the Premier League season appears to have slipped off in recent weeks. A three game run of defeats over the Christmas period saw the Magpies slip deeper towards the relegation zone and although they ended that run of losses with a handy point at Wolverhampton Wanderers over the weekend, it’s fair to assume that their focus for the next few weeks will be shifted back to their fight for top-tier survival this term.

As a lifelong supporter of the club, boss Steve Bruce would surely love to win a trophy for the Toon Army though and the draw has been kind to him so far. Despite the Tyneside club’s record in the FA Cup over the last few seasons being a real issue, they now have home ties against Rochdale and potentially Oxford, both of League One, for a route through to the Fifth Round. Can they navigate the first of those hurdles with a win here at 2/7 with Unibet.

Rochdale are struggling towards the foot of the League One table but have picked up two important wins against local and competitive rivals Accrington and Bolton in their last two games. Those victories have opened the gap between the Dale and the bottom three up to a healthier six points, but that form will have to be continued through the rest of the season to ensure the Greater Manchester outfit stave off relegation from League One yet again.

The cup competitions have provided Rochdale supporters with some excellent moments in recent years and they’ve already enjoyed two memorable ties so far this season, taking Manchester United to penalties in the EFL Cup before drawing the first meeting of this FA Cup tie with another Premier League outfit, Newcastle, in front of their own fans. Can they pull off a shock in the North East at odds of 12/1 with BetVictor.

Newcastle should, this time around, be able to breeze past the Dale. Although the League One side have been in better form in recent weeks, the Magpies did have the better of them for the majority of the first half at the Crown Oil Arena last weekend and in more comfortable surroundings at their own ground, Steve Bruce’s charges should face few issues in breezing through to the win here. We’re backing them on the half-time/full-time market at 5/6 with PaddyPower.

Miguel Almiron took an age to get his first Newcastle goal, but finally broke his duck last month with a last minute winner against Crystal Palace at St James’ Park. The Paraguayan attacker has since followed that up with another two goals – including the opener against Rochdale at the Crown Oil Arena ten days ago. We’re backing him to continue his impressive streak of goalscoring form here at odds of 9/4 with Ladbrokes.
