Rochdale   0 - 2   Luton

Two second-half goals by striker Kevin Gallen earned non-league Luton victory over League Two high-fliers Rochdale in their FA Cup first-round replay.

The hosts dominated the opening hour of the contest, with Chris O'Grady having the best of several chances with a long-range shot against the bar.

But they fell behind when Gallen turned in a cross from Tom Craddock.

And Gallen sealed the win - which sets up a second-round trip to Rotherham - bundling the ball home on 73 minutes.


Luton manager Richard Money told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"I thought it was a thoroughly disciplined performance.

"The longer the game went on the better we got, the more we grew into it and over the two games I think we deserved it.

"Both goals were well taken. I thought he (Kevin Gallen) deserved both goals for a real workmanlike, hard performance.

"He led from the front in the way I would expect him to."
