A first Fleetwood win in six games was secured against Rochdale on Sunday afternoon.

We’ve not won too many away from home, we’ve not won too many at home either lately, but two first half goals were enough to give us a two-nil win at Spotland.

Rochdale started well with us indebted to Maxwell who blocked out Done’s early effort but it was us that took the lead when Roberts (17) headed home a Dobbie freekick, with Dobbie himself going very close to adding a second soon after.

This lead was doubled before the break through when Hughes’ cross into the box was turned home by Morris (38) to make it two-nil, with that lead remaining intact at the break thanks to another Maxwell save to kept out Henderson.

Shortly after break Rochdale had a great chance to get a foothold back into the game when a penalty was awarded for a McLaughlin foul on Lancashire. This was taken by Henderson but after this hit the underside of the bar we managed to clear away the danger of the rebound.

Lillis saved well to deny Hughes a third for us with Maxwell keeping his cleansheet intact when he again denied Henderson to make sure we went home with a two-nil win.
