Rochdale   0 - 1   Yeovil

Rochdale 0-1 Yeovil

Yeovil notched their second successive away win after a closely fought contest at Rochdale.

Both teams had chances in the first half, with Gary Jones going close for the hosts before Sam Williams's shot was saved by home keeper Josh Lillis.

The Glovers took the lead when Owain Tudor Jones's shot was turned onto the post by Lillis and Luke Freeman scored from the rebound.

Rochdale came close to an equaliser but Craig Dawson's header hit the crossbar.


Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"I don't think we deserved to lose the game but football's about what you do in both areas of the pitch and I don't think we dealt with their goal how we should do.

"I think teams are starting to do a lot of planning against us and we're going to have to come up with ways of coping with that.

"The conditions didn't help us with how we want to play the game, it was quite slow at times and that gave the opportunity for the opposition to put us under pressure."

Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:
"I think the key was resilience at the back and throughout the midfield; we got tight on crosses and defended like lions.

"We stood up to the test and the challenge that we knew Rochdale were going to throw at us.

"I think we have come out worthy winners, and it's really pleasing to have back-to-back clean sheets."
