Rochdale 5-2 Bolton Wanderers

Rochdale twice came from behind to beat Bolton 5-2 in the Carabao Cup match at Spotland.

Bolton took the lead 14 minutes into the game when Ronan Darcy's low drive from 25 yards beat Robert Sanchez in the Dale goal.

But Dale levelled in the 26th minute when Callum Camps was fouled by Yoan Zouma as he collected MJ Williams' lofted pass into the area, Ian Henderson comfortably stroking home the resulting spot kick.

Before the half was out, Dale hit the crossbar twice through a Matty Done shot and then Jim McNulty's header.

Bolton were ahead again two minutes into the second half when Dennis Politic robbed Tyler Magloire of the ball and slammed a shot past Sanchez, but once again the home side drew level, substitute Rekeil Pyke heading home in the 64th minute.

And two minutes later Dale took the lead for the first time, Camps firing a thunderous finish into the roof of the net from the edge of the area.

Camps added Dale's fourth on 73 minutes, blasting home from 10 yards, and Ollie Rathbone headed a fifth in the 86th minute.
