Half-Time Report: Rochdale held by Mansfield Town

League Two leaders Rochdale are held by mid-table Mansfield Town.

Rochdale have been unable to break the deadlock in the game with mid-table Mansfield Town, but the League Two leaders have not struggled to create opportunities in an open first half at One Call Stadium.

Rochdale were fast out of the traps and could have been ahead inside three minutes when Ian Henderson dragged his shot just wide of the post.

Dale continued to play confidently, with Peter Vincenti and Oliver Lancashire also going close as the visitors dominated the early exchanges.

Mansfield started to enjoy more attacking play and could have taken the lead themselves, as both Darryl Westlake and Colin Daniel squandered chances to score.

Daniel then had the Stags' best chance of a goal when he forced a save out of Dale keeper Josh Lillis.

Mansfield's on-loan shot-stopper Lewis Price was then called into action midway through a frenetic first half as he produced a diving stop to keep out Matthew Lund.

Rochdale's top scorer Scott Hogan then went close for the visitors as his effort from the centre of the box was held by Price.

The Lancashire club finished the half much the stronger as were unlucky not to have taken the lead as Lund and captain Peter Kavanagh saw their shots saved.
