Match Reports

Report | Salford City 2-1 Dale

4 February 2023

Dale suffered a narrow defeat away to Salford City, losing 2-1 at the Peninsula Stadium.

Conor McAleny’s double, one in each half, proved to be the difference, despite Scott Quigley’s late penalty bringing one back for Dale.

Jim Bentley made four changes from last weekend’s defeat at home to Carlisle. Deadline day signing Toby Mullarkey made his Dale debut and Rhys Bennett made his second debut for the club, whilst Scott Quigley and Ian Henderson both returned to the starting line-up.

It was an even start to the game with Quigley and D’Mani Mellor having shots blocked, whilst Louie Barry fired over from a tight angle for the hosts.

Salford broke the deadlock 11 minutes in when a cross from the left was turned home by McAleny from close range.

Henderson sent a header wide after reacting quickly to a rushed clearance, before Ryan Watson fired off target and Ethan Galbraith was denied from distance by Jake Eastwood.

Neither side troubled the scoresheet again before the break, but Dale came flying out of the blocks at the start of the second-half.

Alex Cairns produced a fine save from Quigley’s well-struck effort, before his flick on produced shouts for a penalty after striking the arm of a Salford defender, but the referee waved claims away.

The hosts doubled the scoreline shortly after the hour mark, when McAleny fired into the bottom corner from just inside the area.

There was a stoppage in play minutes later due to a medical emergency in the crowd, after which Danny Lloyd and Abraham Odoh were introduced by Bentley. Thankfully the support involved is now in a stable condition and been allowed to go home.

Dale were handed a lifeline with ten minutes to play when Quigley was brought to ground inside the area. The forward stepped up to convert for his fifth of the season.

Lloyd had an effort turned round the post and Jimmy Keohane had an effort blocked with a hand just outside the area, but Liam Kelly’s free-kick was comfortable for Cairns to hold.

Dale XI | Eastwood, Seriki, Mullarkey, Bennett, Taylor, Dodgson, Keohane, Kelly, Mellor, Henderson, Quigley.

Subs | O’Donnell, Ball, Rodney, Odoh, Graham, Diagouraga, Lloyd.
