Rochdale 0-0 Milton Keynes Dons

Rochdale moved off the bottom of the table with a goalless draw against fellow strugglers MK Dons.

The hosts, who held Tottenham to a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup on Sunday, hit the bar twice in the opening stages.

First, Dons defender Scott Wootton miscued a clearance before Andy Cannon thundered a shot back off the woodwork.

Kieran Agard nearly grabbed a winner for the visitors, who are five points adrift of safety, but Mark Kitching cleared his effort off the line.

Dale are 10 points off 20th-placed Fleetwood but have four games in hand on the Cod Army.
