Carabao Cup: Grimsby Town 0-2 Rochdale

Oliver Rathbone scored in each half to send Rochdale into the second round of the Carabao Cup at Grimsby's expense.

The hosts came close to taking the lead when Harry Davis' header from a corner hit the post.

Dale opened the scoring eight minutes before half-time when the advancing Rathbone slotted beyond James McKeown.

Rathbone wrapped up the win with a measured 20-yard finish after a goal-line clearance from Jimmy McNulty had denied Jordan Cook a leveller.
