On FA Cup replay day, Tobias Gourlay's spied a bet at Spotland Stadium

"Rochdale are winless in three League One games at Spotland Stadium"

Back Millwall @ [2.26] to beat Rochdale

Rochdale v Millwall
Tuesday 19:45

Las Palmas left it late last night. The game's only goal came in the 90th minute, but a 1-0 win for them is a 1-0 win for us.

Today brings a trio of FA Cup fourth-round replays, including Millwall's lamentably untelevised trip to Rochdale. Their first clash brought a 2-2 draw, but we reckon this is the one where Championship quality asserts itself.

Midtable in the Championship, with little prospect of either relegation or a playoff spot, Millwall fit the profile of a team that would love a cup run. Tonight also brings the possibility of a second debut for old club favourite Tim Cahill, who's rejoined until the end of the season with a view to showing Australia what he can still do before this summer's World Cup.

So we think Neil Harris's men will be up for it. Having won their last two Championship away games, they're bringing a bit of form with them too - which cannot be said for their hosts.

Keith Hill's Rochdale are winless in three League One games at Spotland Stadium, having scored just twice across all three. Second bottom of the table, they really ought to be focusing resources on the league, and that might show this evening.
