Ian Henderson has scored two goals in two games for Rochdale this season

Rochdale came from behind to beat League One rivals Chesterfield 3-1 and reach the second round of the EFL Cup.

Paul McGinn collected Jay O'Shea's pass, cut inside and fired into the top corner from 25 yards out to put the Spireites ahead at half-time.

Ian Henderson headed in Andy Cannon's free-kick after the break, and Cannon tapped in Dale's second soon after.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing then secured all three points for the hosts when he turned in Calvin Andrew's cross.
