Match Reports

Report | Rochdale 1-0 Salford City

8 November 2022

Ian Henderson’s second half goal secured three important points for Rochdale at home to Salford City on Tuesday night, as Dale secured a 1-0 victory.

It was a memorable night at the Crown Oil Arena as the goal saw the striker etch his name in the Rochdale history books, becoming the club’s all-time record goalscorer, with his 80th minute header his 130th for Dale. Substitute Brierley sent a superb ball over the top of the defence and Henderson, who got in front of his marker, nodded home into the far corner. 

Tyrese Sinclair came in for the injured Liam Kelly, in one change from the weekend’s game. 

The visitors were dominated for spells early in the first half without causing any problems for Richard O’Donnell in the Rochdale goal. 

The ‘keeper comfortably held Jack Jenkins’ shot from the edge of the area early on, while Marcus Dackers headed over the bar in the 17th minute. Soon after, Elliot Watt fired over from distance. 

Shortly before the half hour mark, Henderson capitalised on a loose ball and squared for Sinclair, who struck over the bar after making a run into the area. 

Up the other end, Ethan Ebanks-Landell put himself in the way of Ryan Watson’s on target effort, diverting it away from goal with his vital block. 

Dale ramped up the pressure during the final 10 minutes of the half and had a couple of opportunities. 

Devante Rodney saw his powerful strike from the edge of box deflected wide, before Sinclair had a shot blocked behind. From the resulting corner, James Ball turned Cameron John’s delivery goalwards and there were shouts for a handball against Ibou Touray, but the referee stood firm as he turned down the appeals. 

Rochdale came close to an opener three minutes into the second half, but a fantastic stop by Ryan King kept Dale out. After Sinclair got down the right, he sent a dangerous low ball into the area, where Odoh’s first-time effort was superbly denied. After being played in by Sinclair, Rodney got his shot away but King’s superb save denied him. The ball ricocheted off Henderson, but it bounced kindly for Leak who headed over to avert the danger. 

A couple of minutes later up the other end, the Ammies, too, had a chance to break the deadlock. It was their best opportunity of the game so far, but Dackers could only turn the ball over the bar from close range.

Soon after, Rodney then drove into the the area and played a low ball in towards Odoh who had made a run into a central position, but it was just behind him and the chance was gone. 

Dale’s first substitution of the game came in the 67th minute, when Sinclair made way for Brierley.

As Rochdale continued to apply the pressure, Jimmy Keohane then had a shot blocked inside the box. 

Salford were denied by the woodwork soon after, when Luke Bolton’s shot came back off the inside of the post before being cleared away by Sam Graham. 

Sixty seconds later, Dale were in front. Substitute Brierley sent a superb ball over the top of the defence and Henderson, who got in front of his marker, nodded home into the far corner to make history. 

Five minutes later, Odoh then stole the ball high up the pitch before driving forward and firing over the bar, as Dale went in search of a second. 

Rochdale managed the game out superbly during the closing stages and O’Donnell held well onto Ethan Galbraith’s deflected shot in stoppage time.
