FA Cup: Rochdale 4-0 Bromley highlights

National League side Bromley were no match for Rochdale as the League One outfit eased to victory at the Crown Oil Arena.

Brad Inman opened the scoring in the ninth minute, latching on to a fine pass inside full back Alan Dunne from Kgosi Ntlhe and beating one man before sliding a neat finish beneath David Gregory in the visitors goal.

Rochdale were awarded a penalty in the 30th minute when Joe Rafferty was brought down by Luke Wanadio and Ian Henderson dispatched.

Inman scored his second and Dale's third in the 53rd minute, racing on to goalkeeper Josh Lillis' long clearance and finding the Bromley defence asleep, he strode through unchallenged and stroked a confident finish wide of Gregory.

A superb save from Lillis kept out Frankie Sutherland's fierce drive from the edge of the area and Bromley saw out the final 15 minutes of the game with 10 men following Brett Williams' dismissal for a stamp on Jim McNulty.

Henderson added Dale's fourth in the 85th minute with an angled strike.
