Match Preview

No new worries for Hill Rochdale boss Keith Hill has no injury or suspension concerns ahead of the home clash with Exeter. Dale lost 2-1 at Huddersfield in midweek as striker Liam Dickinson was replaced with 13 minutes remaining. However, it was merely a tactical switch and Hill has a full complement of players to choose from. Dale have seen their bid to claim a top-six finish take a blow after two straight defeats, yet Hill said there were plenty of positives to take from the Galpharm Stadium reverse. He said: "I'm not despondent or deterred because that game gives me belief in what we're doing. "To come to Huddersfield, the kings of League One, and play the way we did is rewarding and satisfying." Exeter manager Paul Tisdale has no new injury or suspension worries for the trip. The Grecians sustained no fresh knocks in Tuesday's comfortable 2-0 win over promotion-chasing Bournemouth, meaning Tisdale may opt to stick with the same side. Richard Logan and Jamie Cureton are likely to keep their places up front after they linked up well and scored the decisive goals as Exeter picked up their first win in six attempts against the Cherries. However, Tisdale made no substitutions in that game and may make changes in an attempt to freshen up his side. Striker John O'Flynn is pushing for a recall after making the bench on Tuesday night, while midfielder David Noble is also hoping for a promotion to the starting line-up.

Match Report

Cureton strike enough for Grecians Jamie Cureton's first-half strike earned Exeter a 1-0 win at Spotland as Rochdale fell to a third successive defeat. Owain Fon Williams outfoxed Liam Sercombe in an early one-on-one and the goalkeeper was relieved to see David Noble's dipping volley fly over the crossbar later in the half. At the other end, Ben Hamer was kept busy as he saved shots from Gary Jones and Chris O'Grady, while Dale frontman Liam Dickinson's goalbound effort was blocked by James Dunne. Craig Dawson headed Brian Barry-Murphy's corner over the top. The hosts appeared to be taking charge when they were hit on the counter-attack. Hamer's goal-kick was flicked on by Richard Logan, with the ball bouncing over Marcus Holness and presenting Cureton with a clear run at goal. He nicked the ball over Fon Williams to hand Exeter a 29th-minute lead. O'Grady set up Jones for Dale's best chance of the half but the skipper blasted wide with a clear view at the target, while Exeter should have scored a second when Fon Williams spilled a Noble shot and the ball ran to Logan who wastefully hammered over the top. Hamer was down quick at his near-post to keep out O'Grady's shot in the 53rd minute, while Jason kennedy cleared another Noble effort off the line after 74 minutes, although second-half chances were few and far between.
