Match Preview

Double defensive doubt for Pools Hartlepool boss Mick Wadsworth has doubts over Steve Haslam and Armann Bjornsson for the home clash with Rochdale. Defender Haslam was forced off at half-time during last weekend's 5-2 defeat at Walsall with a back injury and will face a late fitness test. Bjornsson, who would have been Haslam's likely deputy, has struggled to train this week due to an illness and looks almost certain to miss out. Midfielder Antony Sweeney is set to be sidelined again with an ankle wound which will need at least another week to heal. Striker James Brown is progressing well in his recovery from a twisted ankle which forced him to miss the Saddlers defeat, but is unlikely to be risked against Dale. Pools will be looking to get back to winning ways following successive defeats. Rochdale boss Keith Hill is boosted by the return of midfielder Joe Thompson for the trip. Thompson has been suffering from a groin injury in recent weeks but has begun training again and looks certain to come into contention. Hill has no other injury or suspension concerns as his men seek to enhance their play-off credentials after last weekend`s 1-0 win at Plymouth. Dale are 10 points adrift of the top six but have games in hand on the majority of their rivals and Hill is urging his men to stay focused. "It's up to the players to meet the challenge and get as many points as we can," he said. "We are one of those teams that could come with a late run, because we have got the games to play."

Match Report

Dale continue good form Rochdale chalked up a third successive win with a well-deserved 2-0 victory at out-of-sorts Hartlepool. Keith Hill's side dominated at Victoria Park, as goals from Gary Jones and Craig Dawson made it nine points from nine. Visiting keeper Owain Fon Williams was first in action, diving full-stretch to push a stinging Andy Monkhouse shot over the bar on four minutes before, from the resulting corner, Sam Collins' header was hacked off the line by Scott Wiseman. Dale took the lead in the 23rd minute and, from then on, were in command. Chris O'Grady picked out Nicky Adams in space on the right and his angled ball into the area was met by the on-rushing Gary Jones for his 18th goal of the season. Adams was having a field day and, after his shot was saved by Scott Flinders, Will Atkinson's follow up was put in the net from an offside position. Flinders then made a superb stop from close range to keep out Jason Kennedy's shot. The second goal arrived on 55 minutes, Adams again the instigator. His corner was rolled to the edge of the area where Dawson smashed in an unstoppable low shot from 20 yards.
