Rochdale 1-0 Chesterfield- Match Report

Dale down SpireitesIan Henderson's scrappy second-half goal gave Rochdale a 1-0 win against Chesterfield at Spotland.A first half short on quality and goalmouth incident yielded just one chance at either end of the field.First Tom Kennedy llifted a cross towards the edge of the six-yard area where Peter Vincenti stole in ahead of his marker but sent a powerful header over the crossbar.The Spireites then went close with Sam Clucas picking out Gary Roberts but the veteran wideman's header was saved by Dale goalkeeper Josh Lillis.Just shy of the hour mark a well-executed volley from the edge of the area by Ollie Banks was comfortably dealt with by Lillis.Dale made the breakthrough after 65 minutes when Michael Rose sent a low free-kick towards the near post and Henderson ghosted in to get the slightest of touches to tuck the ball beneath Tommy Lee.Caolan Lavery had a chance to snatch an equaliser in time added on when raced clear down the left channel but Lillis pulled off a fine save
