The Dale defender, signed by West Brom last summer and immediately loaned back to Keith Hill's team, signed off in style to earn his hometown club a point when he bundled home Joe Widdowson's cross-cum-shot.

Rochdale raced out of the blocks with a goal after just 14 seconds when Joe Lewis collected a Gabriel Zakuani backpass and miscued his clearance straight to Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, who steadied himself before side-footing into the top corner of the net.

It was almost 2-0 when Matt Done cut infield, drifted past Zakuani and beat Lewis with a low drive but his shot thumped the foot of the post.

The visitors went close with Lee Tomlin testing Owain Fon Williams with a 15-yard effort and later sending a diving header wide after meeting James Wesolowski's cross.

Darren Ferguson's side levelled in first-half stoppage time when Grant McCann's corner was headed home by Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and took the lead early in the second half when Tomlin side-footed home George Boyd's pull back. But Dawson's close range finish earned the hosts a deserved share of the points.

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
