Rochdale   2 - 1   Sheff Wed

Rochdale 2-1 Sheff Wed

Rochdale 2-1 Sheff Wed

Rochdale ruined Gary Megson's first game as Sheffield Wednesday manager with an impressive victory at Spotland.

Dale dominated the first half and led when Matt Done netted from close range after some good work by Scott Wiseman.

Gary Jones added a second from the penalty spot when he smashed the ball in after Daniel Jones fouled Done.

The Owls improved after the break but could not breach the home defence until seconds from the end when Gary Madine headed in a superb Lewis Buxton cross.

But although the visitors piled forward in the four minutes of injury time that followed, they were unable to grab an equaliser.

Wednesday had a couple of openings before the break, with Clinton Morrison firing wide and then failing to test goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams when through on goal.

But the hosts were good value for the lead and could have been further ahead with Done and Chris O'Grady both going close.

Madine had Wednesday's best chances after the break but saw a couple of efforts blocked and miscontrolled another decent opening when well placed in the box.

Giles Coke also had a shot cleared off the line and substitute Isaiah Osbourne saw a late deflected strike saved as the Owls improved.

At the other end, goalkeeper Nicky Weaver did superbly to deny Done when the midfielder burst through the middle.

But Dale did not need to add to their first-half tally to secure a win which stretches their unbeaten run to 10 games and moves them to within a point of the play-off places.

Wednesday's woes continue - despite Megson's appointment - as they slip to 14th in the table, nine points off the play-offs.
