Rochdale v Reds: Half Time

4 October 2014

Rochdale 0
Reds 1 (Ramage 10)

The Reds have the advantage at Spotland thanks to Peter Ramage's header which separates the two sides.

A fast start at Spotland was interrupted twice as Hourihane and Lund received treatment for injuries for separate incidents in the opening six minutes.

The first attempt of the  contest came from Dale's Matthew Lund but he couldn't direct his header on target on eight minutes from an out-swinging corner.

Barnsley first attempt on 10 minutes resulted in the opening goal and Peter Ramage was the man to get it. The centre-half, who joined on loan for his second spell at Oakwell yesterday, met Hourihane's corner with a powerful header from six yards.

A response from the hosts saw Henderson drill wide after he had originally carried his side forward on the counter.

Turnbull made a save with his legs on 18 minutes to keep Vincenti's effort out as Rochdale searched for a path back into the match.

On 20 minutes Devante Cole danced his way into the area past two Rochdale defenders but his effort was well saved by the onrushing Logan.

Both sides enjoyed one-on-ones but both 'keepers made great saves. Vincenti forced Turnbull to palm away fora corner and Hourihane was thwarted by Logan after Treacy found the midfielder in the box on 23 minutes.

Another shout for handball was waved away as Hourihane fired in a 25-yard drive and Lancashire's hands got in the way but the man in black was having none of it.

Vincenti had another decent chance when things opened up for him on 31 minutes but he blazed well over bar from just inside the box.

With nine minutes to go of the first half, Devante Cole showed his great pace once more as he ghosted into the box but was forced too wide to beat Logan and couldn't squeeze in the finish.
