Rochdale 0-0 Gillingham

Gillingham's Andy Barcham is tackled by Simon Ramsden and Will Buckley

Rochdale and Gillingham's League Two play-off semi-final remains in the balance following a keenly-fought goalless draw at Spotland.

The two sides largely cancelled each other out in an intriguing clash, with clear-cut chances limited throughout.

Home keeper Frank Fielding produced the best two saves, one late in the first half to prevent an own goal and another in the second to deny Stuart Lewis.

Chris Dagnall had Dale's best effort, but saw his near-post shot well saved.

Rochdale: Fielding, Ramsden, Kennedy, Stanton, McArdle, Rundle, Gary Jones, Toner, William Buckley (Thompson 63), Le Fondre (Dagnall 71), Thorpe.

Gillingham: Royce, Fuller, King, Richards, Nutter, Jackson (McCammon 66), Lewis, Wright, Weston, Barcham, Oli (Jarrett 71).
Subs Not Used: Julian, Bentley, Southall.
