Notts County 1-2 Rochdale: Match Report

Magpies misery continuesPaul Ince's departure from Notts County failed to arrest the struggling club`s slide as they slipped to a sixth successive defeat at home to play-off chasing Rochdale, going down 2-1.Caretaker boss Carl Heggs saw his side fall two goals behind within 15 minutes as Craig Dawson converted Nicky Adams' corner and then Will Atkinson headed in after a throw-in was unsuccessfully dealt with.The goals aside, Notts dominated the first half and Febian Brandy set up Craig Westcarr to hammer a shot off Owain fon Williams' left-hand post.Westcarr had another chance just before the break but, after setting himself up, fired over when well placed 10 yards out.Nine minutes into the second half, Notts pulled a goal back when John Thompson put the ball in, Graeme Lee helped it on and stand-in skipper Lee Hughes guided home from three yards out.Rochdale could have re-established their two-goal lead but for a good save by Stuart Nelson with his foot to deny Matt Done, while Gary Jones blasted over from a good position.
