Here we bring a selection of the reaction of supporters to the stalemate.

@Gazz_Long: Another great game from @KieranSadlier today. Turned the young full back inside out every time and unlucky not to score. Another assist though

@Markhughes82: We move on to Tuesday and look for a better a result, decent point against a decent Rochdale side

@DRFCAndy: Rochdale at home, 1-1 one of them days. Old saying of we scored too early

@theoverrover: Poor game today from Rovers point of view. Trouble with scoring early is most teams then don’t want to concede so we slow it down but we never got going again. Rochdale earned their point.

@Matt_Walker96: All round poor day today, aside from Sadlier, summed up well by Dieng dropping everything that came near him

@daniel_nice7: Important not to be too hard on #drfc, that’s 11 games in 45 days with 6 wins, 2 draws, and 3 narrow defeats to teams expected to do well. Didn’t capitalise on an early goal but Rochdale are one of the better footballing teams in the league and earned their point. It happens

@J_BELLAMY_19: Very poor performance today and not the style we have previously shown under Moore. Looked very pedestrian and disjointed in the system. Disappointing given a win would have taken up a point off the playoffs!

@Gazz_Long: DM was right. It was so slow and mundane. Had enough chances to win the match easily but you can't let a player run and score from 25 yards without a tackle. How did Cole miss on the line?

@garysouter3: Strange game that. Rovers not at their fluent best and a draw was fair but on another day could have easily had 5. Sadlier hit the post, Taylor was through, Cole could have a tap in. One cleared off the line. Fair play to Dale - good goal

@DRFC_ITEN: We just never got going in midfield. Didn't play with our heads up and didn't create enough through the middle. A disappointing long-range goal conceded again as well. Today is perhaps a microcosm of why we aren't favourites for top six

@JohnLeslieCoyl1: Disappointing performance by #DRFC after a brilliant start. Midfield poor and lacking in creativity. Sadlier easily best player. Okenabirhie, Copps and Sheaf need to start on Tuesday.

@MalcolmCowing: Really have to win these games. Just can never string a few wins together. Gap starting to appear to play off places. Poor performance.
