This coming Tuesday, Walsall Football Club travel to Greater Manchester to take on Rochdale in the latest Sky Bet League One fixture. Once again we've teamed up with tothe92.co.uk to bring you all the latest news, including train information, where to park, and where to get those all-important pre-match refreshments.

Over the past 10 years, Spotland has been re-developed. The only remaining stand pre this period in the Thwaites Beer end and is also the only terraced stand left in the ground. The more vocal home supporters stand here. Opposite this stand is a single tiered all seated stand with two supporting pillars which can block your view of the action. The main stand has a number of pillars and also houses the executive boxes.

 AWAY FANS 
Up to 3,600 visiting supporters can be accommodated and will be situated in the Wilbutts Lane stand running alongside the pitch. Views are unobstructed and very good whilst leg room, facilities and refreshments are all more than reasonable.

 WHERE TO DRINK 
Studds, is the name of the new Rochdale social club situated under the WMG Stand. It serves food, has two TVs, and opens at midday on Saturdays, and from 6 pm for midweek matches. They do allow a few away fans in but you're probably best off keeping club colours covered. The same goes for 2 other pubs situated at the stadium - The Ratcliffe Arms and The Church Inn. All of which are very nice and reasonably priced establishments.

There is a small chippy on Wilbutts Lane which serves a fantastic portion of fish and chips for just £3. Well worth a visit and don't let the queues put you off. Alternatively, within 1 mile you'll find a McDonalds and a Pizza Hut.

 PARKING 
There is only permit holders parking at the stadium itself and street parking is very limited due to the residents only schemes. There are a few private car parks with the most recommended of which being Oulder Hill School. The school is located on the way up to the ground, on the left hand side, along Sandy Lane. Be aware that the walk to the stadium is uphill and approximately 10 minutes away. The back after the game is a lot easier however!

 BY TRAIN 
The nearest / closest train station to Rochdale's Spotland Stadium is Rochdale rail. This is approx 3 miles from the ground.

There is a direct bus service from the station on match days. The bus leaves the station every half hour (15 and 45 past) and takes you direct to the stadium.
