Report | Dale 1-1 Fleetwood Town

19 January 2019

Ian Henderson’s 15th goal of the season earned Dale a point in a 1-1 draw at home to Fleetwood Town.

Paddy Madden put the visitors in front in the first-half, but after Lewie Coyle’s sending off early in the second-half, it was all Dale.

Henderson nodded home Stephen Dooley’s cross midway through the half but Dale couldn’t find a winner despite constant pressure.

Keith Hill started with the same team that began the second-half at Peterborough United last weekend, with Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Ethan Hamilton both making home debuts.

Five minutes in, Hamilton fired a low left-foot shot goalwards which was well held by Fleetwood goalkeeper Alex Cairns, before Ian Henderson fired wide of the far post after Rory Holden’s cross had been blocked into his path.

The visitors wasted a golden chance to take the lead in the 20th minute when Ashley Nadesan squared for Wes Burns to turn into an empty net, but he fired over from eight yards.

Dale players and supporters claimed for a penalty shortly afterwards when Henderson’s deflected shot looped goalwards, before being collected by Cairns, but the referee waved away the protests.

Fleetwood full-back Lewie Coyle forced Josh Lillis into a comfortable save before he curled a superb effort off the outside of the upright from 25-yards.

The visitors took the lead eight minutes before the break when Madden rose highest on the edge of the six-yard box to flick home a right-wing cross from ?.

Ross Wallace sent a free-kick well over and Burns saw a curling effort well held by Lillis low to his left.

Half-time saw Luke Matheson introduced for his EFL debut in place of Matty Done, with Joe Rafferty going to left-back.

At the start of the second period, Camps saw a dipping effort beaten away by Cairns, before Coyle was sent off for a rash challenge on Rafferty in the 54th minute.

After that, it was all Dale, with Hamilton seeing a shot held from 25-yards before linking up with Holden as the latter fired inches wide of the far post.

Hamilton fired just off target and Camps had a shot held, before Dale’s pressure paid off.

Stephen Dooley delivered an inch perfect cross for Henderson who powered a header home from a central position.

The Dale skipper was inches away from putting his side in front when he latched on to Lillis’ superb kick, before cutting inside and having an effort tipped wide by Cairns.

Dale continued to press but couldn’t find a winner, settling for a point.
