Accrington 1-2 Rochdale

Rochdale held on to beat Accrington despite playing 45 minutes with 10-men.

Matty Lund smashed the ball home to put Dale in front after Michael Rose's fierce strike cannoned off the crossbar and forward Scott Hogan doubled the advantage with a free header.

Stanley pulled one back through Kayode Odejayi's looping shot before George Donnelly saw red in first-half injury time for a challenge on Nicky Hunt.

Odejayi, Peter Murphy and Luke Joyce almost equalised, but Dale hung on.
