Andrew grabs a point at ‘Pool
substitute five minutes earlier, nodded home the leveller.
Keith Hill made two changes to his starting eleven, as Josh Lillis and Zach Clough both returned to the starting line-up.
Dale were behind inside five minutes, when Thompson nodded home Marc Bola’s cross from the left at the near post beyond Lillis.
However, Dale got themselves back on level terms just three minutes later. Delaney met Bradden Inman’s corner at the near post and powered a right foot volley into the top corner.
Delaney almost found the net again two minutes later, when Inman’s corner looped back up off Sam Hart, who was being held at the near post. Delaney stole in but sent his stooping header wide.
Clough saw a free-kick held, but the hosts got themselves back in front just before the half hour mark, when Tilt rose highest at the back post to nod home a corner, which crossed the line despite the best efforts of a Dale defender who had hooked the ball away.
After the break, both Nathan Delfouneso and Ben Heneghan had headers off target for the hosts, before Hill made a double substitution, introducing Jordan Williams and Andy Cannon for Clough and MJ Williams.
Cannon was involved straight away, linking with Rathbone and Inman, the latter returning the former’s pass, but Rathbone’s shot was well blocked inside the area.
With eight minutes remaining Hill brought on Andrew with his final sub, and just five minutes later the striker had equalised.
Williams set the ball back to Rafferty on the right who crossed first time to the back post, where Andrew’s diving header found the far bottom corner to earn Dale a point.
Inman, who started as part of a front three with Ian Henderson and Clough, said: “We didn’t start well, conceding early on, but I felt for the majority of the first half and into the second half we deserved at least a point, if not the win.
“I felt we had wave after wave of attacks where theirs came on a counter and a cross, so it’s a bit frustrating for us.
“We did well but we know in games like this we cannot switch off. With each game we are pushing on and hopefully we can turn these draws into wins.”
