Match Reports

Report | Wrexham 0-0 Dale - Emirates FA Cup First Round

10 November 2019

Dale’s FA Cup tie with Wrexham ended goalless with no side able to break the deadlock.

Dale will now face the Vanarama National League side in a replay at the Crown Oil Arena for a place in the second round.

The hosts nearly got off to the perfect start when the ball fell to Ben Tollitt in the Dale box, but he couldn’t hit the target.

Tollitt then went close once more, this time cutting in from the left-hand side and hitting the post with a powerful strike.

Dale had a chance when Matty Done was fouled 20 yards from goal, but Aaron Morley’s free kick travelled just wide.

Following that, some great link up play between Jimmy Keohane and Callum Camps saw the latter receive the ball, but he could only prod over the bar.

Rhys Norrington-Davies then drove forward and released Ian Henderson who teed up Done, but his shot lacked power and was comfortably held by Rob Lainton in the Wrexham goal.

Three minutes into the second-half, Morley sprayed a great pass over the Wrexham defence which Henderson latched onto before putting a ball across the face of goal, but it was cleared for a throw-in.

Wrexham countered from that passage of play, and had a great chance when Bobby Grant volleyed wide from ten yards out.

Mark Carrington was the next to go close for the home side, his half-volley going just over Robert Sánchez’s goal.

The hosts began to gain momentum and went close again when James Jennings headed just over from a cross from the right-hand side.

Dale regained control of the game and went forward in an attempt to break the deadlock, with Jimmy Keohane shooting from the edge of the area, but it was blocked behind for a corner.

Wrexham had a glorious chance to open the scoring with just under 20 minutes left on the clock when Shaun Pearson rose highest to meet a corner but his header was expertly saved by Sánchez to keep the scores level.

The woodwork came to Dale’s rescue for the second time, when Akil Wright met a cut back from Jennings but could only hit the post with Sánchez beaten.

The final action of the second-half belonged to Dale when MJ Williams shot from 30-yards which Lainton fumbled, but the loose ball was put behind for a corner.

The corner came to nothing, and the game ended 0-0.

The result means Dale will host the Welsh side at the Crown Oil Arena in a replay for a chance to advance into the second round, with the date for the fixture still to be confirmed.

Dale’s next game is away against League Two side Bradford City in the Trophy on Tuesday, with ticket details available HERE.
