Rochdale boss Keith Hill refused to point the finger at Tommy Lee after his blunder allowed Darlington to score a late winner in the first leg of their Coca-Cola League Two play-off semi-final.

Dale goalkeeper Lee, on loan from Macclesfield, raced off his line to meet Neil Wainwright´s stoppage-time free-kick, but made a hash of his attempted gather and Ian Miller looped a header into the empty net to seal a 2-1 victory.

But Hill insists the tie is still wide open and jumped to the defence of Lee saying: "I´m not despondent in any way, shape or form - it´s still a tight game."
