Aldershot Town 0-0 Rochdale

Conference side Aldershot will be in the draw for the FA Cup third round after a draw with League One Rochdale.

Michael Rose saw a shot from range saved by Shots keeper Phil Smith while Dan Holman missed two first-half chances for the hosts.

Peter Vincenti fired a volley straight at Smith on the hour.

Brett Williams had two second-half efforts saved by Dale keeper Conrad Logan and Glenn Wilson and Holman both went close late on for the hosts.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"It was outstanding and we're standing here and I can't believe we've not won the game but their keeper was in inspired form. The second half we were absolutely relentless the way we powered forward and we created numerous chances.

"On another day we could've had three or four comfortably but it wasn't meant to be. The effort and the way we played I think we were certainly the better side on the day.

"We're in the hat and that's a great place to be in and a great thing to say after the draw."

Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We picked three sides and we've had to change it but the players have responded well.

"It's very difficult because you plan all week and we've left four members of staff/players at home because of a virus and we've lost three overnight who travelled with us so subsequently we've changed the side and obviously we only had five on the bench.

"It's been testing but at the end of the day we're still in the FA Cup.

"It's been hard and it's been tough, and tough on the players as well."
