41. When Dale break they are looking very dangerous. This time Done breaks, finding Lund, who fires a powerful on target effort from distance.
37. Link up between Vincenti and Henderson sees Hendo find space on the right hand side of play. He fires a shot, from an acute angle, at Price, but his effort it fractionally over the bar!
31. OFF THE POST! A great save from Price denies Hogan. It goes as far as Hendo, who beats the 'keeper with a chip, but the effort is off the post!
29. LET OFF! Olly Lancashire has gifted the Stags an opportunity with a mistake, but Palmer can only head into the top netting!
16. Stags were on the break after a weak effort from Matty Lund is cleared. Colin Daniel was though on goal, but could only scuff his shot past the upright.
The Stags have been applying a spell of pressure, but Dale are defending resolutely.
12. Free-kick to Dale... Hendo sends it into the area, but it skips through everyone and goes out of play for a goal-kick.
Lively opening to the game... both teams enjoying plenty of the ball so far.
