Here's how Pool's players rated:
1. MAN OF THE MATCH: Chris Maxwell - 7/10
Made two big early saves to keep Blackpool on level terms, but not a lot he could have done about Dale’s winner.
2. Ollie Turton - 6/10
Got into some great forward positions but often ignored. Little too safety-first at times, but that was the same for everyone.
3. Dan Ballard - 7/10
Calm and composed on the ball as always. Showed good positioning to always be in the right place at the right time.
4. Jordan Thorniley - 6/10
Didn’t have a great deal to do on his return to the side. Cleared well though whenever the ball came near him.
