Slough Town vs Rochdale

Football - FA Cup - 04 Dec 19:45

Couldn't resist having a nibble on this one. Slough are 4 divisions below Rochdale but I think they will be far more competitive than that. There hasn't been an upset so far in this round and it wouldn't be the FA Cup without one! Obviously that's not a valid reason but ya know.
Anyway, Slough are unbeaten in 15 games and 11 home games (W9-D1-L1) in all competitions. They have scored 2+ in 9 of their 11 games and have notched up scorelines like 8-1, 4-0 and 3-0 (twice) against sides in their division. It's also worth mentioning their terrific 6-0 away win at Gainsborough in the last round - a side one division above them.
Slough have scored in all 25 games this season, scored 2+ in 18/25, 3+ in 13/25 and 4+ in 9/25 so their goal-scoring exploits are there for all to see.
Rochdale come into this game favourites as the league side - rightly so. Draws have been the keyword for Rochdale games this season - their overall record this campaign is W7-D11-L8 which isn't too bad but by any stretch but if we split that into home/away and look at the latter we see their record is W1-D5-L5, which looks a lot better to me!
Rochdale have drawn a blank in 5/11 away games this season and I think they could come a cropper against a side who we know like to score goals. It remains to be seen how this translates with the gap in leagues but Hereford (same division, 10-1 to win) earned a draw at League One Fleetwood on Saturday in their 2nd Round tie so could that be that a guide?
Obviously a risk, but I don't think Slough should be the price they are and that's the fundamental reason for tipping. The Slough fans will be out in force and it's a massive TV outing for them too.
