The Bulls beat Rochdale 2-1 in today's League Two encounter at Edgar Street.
After a first half with more than a hint of pre-season friendly about it, the second half woke the game up with Craig King scrambling home Gavin McCallum's slow-moving goalbound effort before the defender could clear. Ryan Valentine then became the only player of the day to wrestle the ball from Mathieu Manset to take the penalty. He was then relieved to slot home the rebound after Frank Fielding saved his initial effort. An instant reply from Gary Jones made the later minutes nervous but the Bulls not only held on but could have extended their lead.
1,975 watched the game, with 341 from Rochdale and a dozen or so counterfeit Frenchmen in the Directors Box. The win puts the Bulls 15th, closer to the play-offs than the drop zone.
