Three To Watch: Rochdale

1 September 2017

We've picked out three Rochdale players and had a look at their careers to date that could be important for our visitors tomorrow...

Matt Done

Matt Done joined Rochdale on August 3 this summer and became Dale’s third signing.

It’s his third time at the club with his first and second spells coming between 2010-11 and then 2013-15.

Done started his career with Wrexham in 2004 as a youth product and spent four years with the National League side before moving to Hereford in 2008. He failed to make an impact and made around 50 appearances in three years with just under half of them coming off the bench.

He went out on loan to Rochdale in 2010 and scored six goals in 37 appearances before returning to his parent club and moving to Barnsley at the start of the 2011/12 season.

He moved to Rochdale in 2013 and scored 14 goals in 70 appearances before signing for Sheffield United where he played a part of the Blades title winning push last season featuring in 35 of Sheffield’s games, before a move back to Rochdale at the start of the season.

Ian Henderson

Ian Henderson started his career with Norwich where he came through the youth system, making his debut against Coventry City back in 2002.

In his first season with Dale in 2013 he scored 12 goals in 52 appearances which lead to a contract extension in 2014. His second season saw his goalscoring improve with an impressive 22 goals in 50 appearances. Last season he scored 19 goals in 49 appearances, still proving to be a real threat in front of goal.

Brad Inman

Brad Inman joined Rochdale on loan from fellow League One side Peterborough this season.

The Australian-born centre midfielder started his career with Newcastle as a youth product and went out on loan to Crewe Alexandra in November 2012 for the remainder of the season, a spell in which he appeared 21 times and scored five goals, impressing the manager Steve Davis to offer him a permanent deal.

He became an integral part of Crewe’s system, playing in 40 games during his first full season and during his three-year period at Gresty Road, he made over 100 appearances scoring goals 16.

The 25-year old then signed for Peterborough in June 2016 but only featured 12 times last season, before joining Rochdale on loan this season.
