Result: Fleetwood Town, Rochdale ends goalless

The League Two clash between Fleetwood Town and Rochdale finishes goalless.

The League Two clash between Fleetwood Town and Rochdale has finished goalless.

The home side started the brighter at Highbury, but gilt-edged chances were few and far between in the opening stages.

In the 10th minute, Matty Blair was able to play a through-ball to Iain Hume, but the striker was flagged for being offside.

Five minutes later, Rochdale's Jamie Allen crossed in from the right-hand side to find Matt Lund, but the attacker failed to make the most of his chance.

Hume had the ball in the back of the visitors' net soon after, but once again, he was flagged for offside.

Chris Maxwell, the Cod Army goalkeeper, was on fine form in the first half, making crucial saves from Allen, Peter Vincenti and Ian Henderson.

The opening stages of the second half were cagey, Nathan Pond having to head away Joe Rafferty's dangerous cross not long after the restart.

Six minutes later, Dale went close again as Lund's acrobatic overhead volley skimmed the post.

At the other end of the pitch, the home team came very close to scoring on the hour mark as Hume nearly lobbed Josh Lillis, but the goalkeeper managed to recover well to deny the Canadian.

The final 10 minutes of the game saw the action intensify, with Henderson inches away from putting Dale ahead and Vincenti's effort causing havoc inside the home box.

However, the game eventually finished with neither side breaching the deadlock.
