Rochdale 2 Hartlepool 1

HARTLEPOOL fought back only to give away a goal in the dying seconds to give Rochdale a win which had not looked like coming.

Sadly Bradley was involved in both Rochdale goals. With minutes left he was cruelly judged to have fouled Stuart and conceded the penalty which gave Painter the Rochdale goal.

Rochdale were in front for only a few minutes before substitute Clark ploughed through the home defence which was caught napping and slipped the ball under the goalkeeper for an equaliser.

But Painter caught the United defence asleep and dispossessed Bradley to drop the ball on to the head of Farrell to score the winner in the last few seconds.
