Football round-up: Scott Hogan's a hero as Leeds crash out at Rochdale

Rochdale registered one of the shocks of the FA Cup third round yesterday as the League Two side sent Leeds United crashing out with a 2-0 win at Spotland. Goals towards the end of each half from Scott Hogan and Ian Henderson secured a place in the fourth round and Brian McDermott's in-form Championship team could have few complaints after a poor display. The hosts took a deserved lead at the end of the first half when Hogan drifted between Marius Zaliukas and Jason Pearce to meet Peter Vincenti's cross and send a looping header over Paddy Kenny for his 11th goal of the season. The result was sealed in the 83rd minute when Graham Cummins picked out Henderson who volleyed into the top corner.
