38. Corner ball to Cheltenham Town... lofted ball to the back stick and a Harrison shot is deflected out for another corner.
PHEW! Cheltenham free-kick up and over the wall... Lillis left rooted to the spot, but it's just over the bar!
26. SAVE! Brown called into action again. He denies Vincenti from around 8 yards.
BLOCKED ON THE LINE! George Donnelly is denied by Craig Braham-Barrett!
It's Rochdale 2-0 Cheltenham Town (Hendo, 15 minutes)
GOOOOOOAAAAAAAL! HENDOOOOOOOO! I'
Dale have taken the lead with 11 minutes on the clock after a swift move down the left hand side of play... Hendo broke, playing in Vincenti, who sent a left footed shot past Brown!
8. First corner of the game to Dale... it's cleared away by Cheltenham Town.
It's a bright and positive start for Dale... the players are giving Cheltenham no time on the ball whatsoever.
Kick-off! We're underway at Spotland...
The players are walking out to a different song today at the request of the Gaffer... it's 'Tsunami', instead of 'This Is The One'
