M-M 1 - 3 Rochdale

24361 spectators arrived at Malcolm Park, where weather conditions were pretty good for football. Ensti Peltola was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Joel David and Kent Agerholm. M-M had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Tillen - Cachia Caruana, Alexandersson, Mac Domhnaill - Coppola, Persson, Armstrong, Sarstedt, Yeoh - Caldwell, Thymar.

Rochdale decided to use a 4-5-1 set up. They fielded: Colbourne - Yates, Porter, Sánchez Barriga, Lukić - Szachta, Willis, Agrawal, Büsser, Persico - Golovnya.

Today, Rochdale's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their titanic level with that tactic. Rochdale took the lead after 3 minutes making the score 0 - 1. Scott Porter placed the ball out of reach for the home side's keeper after a fine move, coming in from the left. After 25 minutes, Rochdale were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the taker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his team mates a bit by surprise. Clint Willis did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans. The home keeper was stunned 26 minutes into the match when he misjudged the free kick by Mischa Büsser and dived in the wrong direction. The visitors increased the lead to 0 - 2. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. M-M had most of the ball, with 54 percent of possession.

M-M supporters cheered as good work down the right got the ball to Malcolm Thymar who reduced the visitors' lead after 58 minutes to 1 - 2. M-M put pressure on the visitors' central defence 66 minutes into the game, but Malcolm Alexandersson couldn't find an opening. M-M's Malcolm Sarstedt had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 75 minutes having been played. Shamsuddin Yunis was the replacement. As the captain was no longer on the pitch, Malcolm Tillen took over the role of being the M-M captain. After 75 minutes, Mischa Büsser sent the corner kick right to Nitin Agrawal who headed it sharply past the keeper. 1 - 3! M-M enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 56 percent of possession.

M-M's best player was Malcolm Persson. On the other hand, Malcolm Coppola's play was disheartening. Most important Rochdale player was Myroslav Golovnya. Karol Szachta turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 1 - 3.
