Mor­ley ends Rochdale dip

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT - LEAGUE ONE

TEENAGER Aaron Mor­ley gave Rochdale a 1-0 win over Rother­ham in League One.

The vic­tory ended a run of five league de­feats for Brian Barry-Mur­phy’s men.

The 42nd-minute strike from the 19-year-old against the play-off hope­fuls moved Dale up to 16th.

Ipswich missed the chance to put pres­sure on Sky Bet League One lead­ers Wy­combe as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Coven­try.

Wy­combe had a week off due to Bury be­ing ex­pelled, which gave Paul Lam­bert’s side a chance to cut five-point deficit on the Chair­boys.

But they could not fully cap­i­talise as they drew their third suc­ces­sive league match.

The Trac­tor Boys took the ini­tia­tive just af­ter the half-hour mark af­ter Will Keane headed home Alan Judge’s cor­ner.

How­ever, Coven­try se­cured a point when Maxime Bi­amou latched on to a through ball from Liam Kelly be­fore slot­ting home in the 56th minute.

Black­pool moved up to fourth in the ta­ble with a 3-1 suc­cess against Fleet­wood in the Fylde coast derby.

Liam Feeney’s first goal for the club put Black­pool ahead af­ter 11 min­utes with a low ef­fort into the bot­tom cor­ner.

The hosts dou­bled their ad­van­tage when Sul­lay Kaikai found the top cor­ner with a free-kick in the 47th minute, while Ar­mand Gnan­duil­let made it 3-0 with a thump­ing header. Conor McAleny grabbed a late con­so­la­tion for Fleet­wood.
