Rochdale 3-0 Barnsley

Ian Henderson
Ian Henderson has now scored 39 goals in his time at Rochdale

Ian Henderson marked his 400th career appearance with a goal as Rochdale brushed aside Barnsley at Spotland.

Calvin Andrew got Dale going with a powerful, driven effort from the edge of the box in the opening 10 minutes.

Peter Vincenti's downward header doubled the lead shortly after the half hour before Henderson's clever dink over Adam Davies made it 3-0.

Barnsley, who took Premier League side Everton to extra-time in the Capital One Cup in midweek, rarely threatened.

Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:

Hill on Rochdale v Barnsley

"I'm pleased. I was pleased with our approach coming into the game.

"It's difficult as a manager because you can't get carried away. You're only ever three games away from the sack but I'm pleased with the progress we've made from last season.

"I'm relatively pleased with the team performance and, when it comes down to individual performances, everyone takes credit."
