Rochdale have never progressed past the fifth round of the competition but the home side were never overawed by history, nor a side who are 44 places above them in the league ladder.

It was a high tempo display from Rochdale, and they deservedly took a 1-0 lead into the interval thanks to a Scott Hogan header two minutes into stoppage time.

A second Dale goal was coming and it was a beauty when it did arrive in the 84th minute.

Substitute Graham Cummins had the ball on the right and floated the ball towards Henderson inside the area.

The big striker capped a man-of-the-match performance with a measured volley into the top corner of Paddy Kenny's goal.
