Match Preview: Hull City v Rochdale



Both Hull City and Rochdale are looking to continue their good starts to the season when they face off at the KC Stadium in the Capital One Cup.

Bruce's side face a tricky test against Rochdale

Bruce’s side face a tricky test against Rochdale

Each side have tasted just one defeat so far and have picked up seven points from their opening four league matches.

They also advanced to the second round of this competition on penalties as Hull saw off Accrington Stanley, while Rochdale put Coventry City on the spot.

Steve Bruce’s Tigers have responded fairly well to their relegation from the Premier League.

They have won two of their games and were denied a third victory by an Allan McGregor error against Wolverhampton Wanderers, while a 98th-minute Johann Berg Gudmundsson strike consigned them to their first loss on Saturday against Charlton Athletic.

After finishing eighth in League One last season, Keith Hill’s Rochdale will be aiming to push into the play-offs this year and have made a fairly decent start.

They opened with consecutive 2-0 victories before high-flying Walsall inflicted a 2-1 defeat last Tuesday, while they were held to a goalless draw by Chesterfield on Saturday.

The two sides were in the fourth tier the last time they met, with Hull doing the double over the Dale.
