Disappointing game for Rochdale today with Workington running out 10-6 winners. Scoreline flattered Hornets as Workington dominated for long stretches. Their defence smothered Rochdale who struggled to make metres all afternoon. They only managed to threaten at the end of each half but defended their own line stoutly for the first 40. Particularly impressive as they repelled three (could have been 4) dropouts in a row. Pressure told eventually with Town scoring twice wide on the left after the break. Late consolation from Hornets as Workington's fullback, who was immaculate other than this effort, spilled a bomb under a lot of pressure from English who scored beneath the sticks. I believe he was one of the Wigan DR players, anyone know he was, missed the teams being read out.
First poor result for a good few weeks though so hopefully Rochdale keep their heads up for a tough one against a rebounding Halifax next week. Today's results show anyone can beat anyone in this league with maybe the exception of Leigh so here's hoping for a return to winning ways in a week's time.
