Rochdale 6 - 0 Park

Dark skies made the crowd of 1439 at Springfield Park a little nervous, but the rain held off. Hektor Karch was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Rochdale had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. Lineup: Colbourne - Saar, Porter, Castle, Yates - Persico, Büsser, Agrawal, Birch, Sumerel - Wotsch.

Park decided to use a 4-4-2 set up. The following players had been chosen: Malpass - Treacy, Caggiula, Veith, Scheding - Krotkowski, Kelly, Westbury, Al-Ani - Mörnner, Barron.

Rochdale saw most attack opportunities on the wings, taking advantage of their mythical level with that tactic. Park mostly relied on their solid long range shooting ability. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 4 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Nitin Agrawal, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. After 11 minutes, Rochdale's Andres Saar found the back of the goal with a beautiful free kick. 2 - 0. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Rochdale lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Rochdale's Mischa Büsser increased the lead to 3 - 0, after he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing goalkeeper following some good play down the right wing after 37 minutes. It was obvious that Rochdale had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. David Birch of Rochdale was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. Halftime score was 3 - 0. Rochdale had most of the ball, with 84 percent of possession.

Proving his experience, Teodor Wotsch scored 4 - 0 for Rochdale after putting some pressure on the opposing defence at a critical moment. Nitin Agrawal of Rochdale seemed to be floating in the air as he elegantly headed in to make the score 5 - 0 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Andres Saar. After 79 minutes, Rochdale sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached Teodor Wotsch, who had plenty of space to place a well aimed shot - 6 - 0. Rochdale enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 85 percent of possession.

Most important Rochdale player was Mischa Büsser. However, Nitin Agrawal made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating Park player was without a doubt Joacim Mörnner. Ivan Veith on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 6 - 0.
