Rochdale 2 Grimsby 0; Coca Cola FOOTBALL LEAGUE TWO.
The first-half efforts were enough to beat the troubled Mariners, who had boss Mike Newell sent from the dugout for the second half.
The opening goal arrived in the fourth minute when Rundle sent a 20-yard shot goalward, the effort taking a heavy deflection to leave Grimsby keeper Wayne H enderson wrong-footed.
Dale made it two in the 11th minute when Rundle released Le Fondre who appeared to be offside. While the Grimsby defence appealed, Le Fondre charged through unchallenged and fired past Henderson.
Grimsby went close just before the break when Adrian Forbes' strike was tipped onto the bar by Frank Fielding.
