Rochdale 0-0 Hartlepool

Rochdale   0 - 0   Hartlepool

Newly-promoted Rochdale battled to a draw against Hartlepool on the opening day of the new season.

The visitors had the best of the early opportunities, going close through Joe Gamble and Andy Monkhouse.

Dale responded and Hartlepool goalkeeper Scott Flinders did well to keep out efforts from both Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro and Gary Jones.

Pools continued to make the best chances but Anthony Sweeney and Sam Collins both headed over.


Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"I've been playing the game in my own mind for the last six weeks so I'm really pleased with the outcome.

"I think there was a lot of nervous energy for the first 10 or 15 minutes and that was a surprise because we haven't shown any of that in pre-season.

"The new lads acquitted themselves well, but in the second half I just want a bit more penetration from the possession we kept. "
