Rochdale 3-0 Mansfield Town

Scott Hogan

Scott Hogan scored in each half as high-flying Rochdale piled more misery on a Mansfield Town side who have now not won in 13 games.

Hogan put Dale ahead, rising to head in a Graham Cummins cross, and Matthew Lund's close-range shot made it 2-0 after good work by Peter Vincenti.

Ollie Palmer headed a rare Mansfield chance wide before the interval.

But Hogan ended any lingering hopes of a comeback after the break, shooting home after good work by Michael Rose.

Cummins could have added to the lead in the closing stages while Mansfield did not manage a shot on target throughout.

Post Match: Rochdale assistant Beech

Rochdale assistant manager Chris Beech told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We asked for that from the players today. We wanted to be disciplined but also expressive and the boys were exactly that.

"It was good to see three goals inside the six-yard box. Crosses flashing across the goal, players really working hard off the ball to make those runs.

"The best thing for us is it hits some rhythm. We're playing, recovering, training, playing. And we've got a rhythm to the next ten days now."
