I can see this being a tough, low scoring game between two decent sides.

0-0, or maybe a sneaky single goal win - keeping us in the mix and under the radar.

Assuming no injuries, expect to see the Dale team that started against Barnsley.

Threw that one away. And to miss a 93rd min penalty is criminal. Two points dropped for me.

Should have put a bet on for 1-1. Good equaliser from Jamille Matt. Could of scored earlier if it wasn't for a good tip over the bar from your goalie. Decent penalty save from Chris Maxwell. Fair result to me

Rochdale where the more progressive side and 1 up with 3 min's to go then missing a pen with last kick feels like a loss for them.
Fleetwood just being Alexander's Fleetwood, grinding out points here and there but no real identity, play to draw and chuck bodies
on when it goes tits.
All things considered its a point won for us and not losing at home to Rochdale is alright given we normally do, ironically we usually
scab it at Spotland.

I don't understand where this 'we always lost at home to Rochdale' has come from, heard it said by a few of your fans now. We lost 1-0 at your place last season, the season we both went up we played out a 0-0 draw, season before that we won 3-0 when we needed to win really to kill any worries of relegation to non-league. Apart from that win our recent record home and away to you is pretty dire.

Definitely still feels like 2 points dropped even after the dust has settled on this one, but in the grand scheme of things its a good away point to have. I'm sure Henderson will make up for his penalty miss too. Oh and a word on Calvin Andrew, he was absolutely fantastic yesterday. He's just getting better and better. Amazing what a good manager can do for a player that over the years has been called every name under the sun really. He won everything in the air, held the ball up fantastically and knows how to beat a man too. He's now added a few goals to his game too, Keith Hill is pretty special with players such as Calvin. Interesting to know what Fleetwood fans thought of him yesterday too?
