Rochdale 2-0 Torquay
E-mail your reaction to Football Talk

Rochdale kept pace with the promotion chasing pack with victory over Torquay at Spotland.

The home side could have scored a glut of goals but they had to settle for a brace from Kevin Townson.

The striker should have had a hat-trick but failed to hit the target after Clive Platt's deflected shot rebounded to him off the crossbar.

Kieron Durkan also went close but fired wide from a Tony Ford cross in the 70th-minute.

It looked as though another goal would elude Rochdale until a last-minute mistake by Steve Woods allowed Townson to chip the keeper for his second.

Torquay almost pulled a goal back at the end but Eifion Williams drilled the ball wide.


Rochdale: Hahnemann, Evans, Jobson, Griffiths, McAuley, Ford, Oliver, Jones, Durkan, Townson, Platt. Subs: Gilks, Bayliss, Flitcroft, Doughty, McCourt.

Torquay: Dearden, McNeil, Woods, Hankin, Hockley, Canoville, Rees, Graham, Hill, Roach, Richardson. Subs: Northmore, Bedeau, Law, Williams, Williamson.

Referee: R Pearson (Peterlee).
