York City 0-0 Rochdale

Rochdale missed the chance to go top of the League Two table after a goalless draw at York City.

The visitors had the best chance of the first half when Andrew Tutte's strike was saved by loanee Aaron McCarey.

York dominated after the restart and almost broke the deadlock when Ryan Jarvis's close-range shot was kept out by Josh Lillis.

But it was Dale who came close to stealing all three points when Ian Henderson's effort went narrowly wide.

Keith Hill's side now lie fifth in League Two, but are just one point off top spot, while York are two points above the relegation places.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"You see how many balls were bouncing around in the six-yard box and hitting bodies and hitting the goalkeeper. You've got to live with it.

"So we've got the clean sheet, we've gained another point which is important and it's about keeping what we've got there at the moment.

"There's a lot of good football being played, a lot of hard work going in and if we continue to do that we'll be fine."

Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I feel as though the opposition are showing us a lot of respect.

"When you're not winning games you shouldn't be losing them.

"Arguably out of those six games that we've lost, there's been an injustice with respect to refereeing decisions."
