Match Reports

Report | Dale 1-1 Lincoln City

17 September 2019

A late equaliser denied Dale all three points at home to Lincoln City on Tuesday night.

Stephen Dooley had given Dale an early lead in the opening period, but Harry Toffolo’s cross from the left four minutes from time nestled in the far corner to earn the visitors a share of the spoils.

Brian Barry-Murphy made one change from Saturday’s game at Peterborough United, with Ollie Rathbone replacing Aaron Morley in midfield.

Dale began the game brightly, with Dooley and Rathbone firing efforts narrowly off target in the opening stages.

Dooley broke the deadlock in the 13th minute, pouncing on a spill from Lincoln goalkeeper Josh Vickers, who couldn’t keep hold of Callum Camps’ turn and shot. Dooley fired goalwards, finding the back of the net via a slight deflection.

Rekeil Pyke then fired into the side netting after Camps saw a shot blocked, before Vickers held on to a well-struck effort from Dooley high up.

The visitors’ only effort of the first period was an ambitious free-kick from Jason Shackell, who fired well over.

Rhys Norrington-Davies sent an effort wide whilst Camps had a deflected effort spilled, but collected at the second attempt by the visiting stopper.

It was the visitors who created the majority of chances in the second period, with Robert Sánchez holding well to an effort from Bruno Andrade, before the Lincoln man’s low ball across the face of goal somehow missed everyone.

Sánchez then produced a fine one-handed save to beat away Jack Payne’s dipping effort, before he and Eoghan O’Connell combined to block another effort from Panye, this time from close range.

The Dale stopper then held on to Joe Morrell’s dipping effort, shortly after Jimmy Keohane had fired off target from distance.

With four minutes of normal time remaining, the visitors grabbed an equaliser, when Toffolo’s from the left somehow found its way in at the far post.

Morell saw another dipping effort comfortably held in three minutes of added time as both sides tried to create a winning opportunity, but ultimately had to settle for a point apiece.
