Rochdale cruised to their first home win of the season after racing into a 3-0 half time lead against Walsall. Matt Done fired Dale into a fifth minute lead before Ashley Eastham scored his first ever Dale goal when he glanced home a Scott Tanser free-kick. Ian Henderson drilled Dale 3-0 up before Stephen Dawson’s cross was turned into his own net by Andy Butler. The scoreline could have been even more emphatic but some narrow misses and the woodwork denied Rochdale more goals.
