Rochdale AFC Ladies came from behind to draw 3-3 with Urmston Meadowside on Sunday.

Despite Erin Kilpatrick’s first-half goal, Rochdale were trailing 3-1 at the half-time interval, before mounting a second-half comeback.

Manager Mark Pilling was pleased with his side’s second-half performance, he said: “I can only draw positives from the second-half display, coming back from 3-1 down.

“It was a good solid performance with some well-taken goals, so hopefully we can take that into coming games.”

Rochdale’s next game is at home to Bolton Lads & Girls Club next Sunday 27 January, 2.00pm KO.
