Stockport 3-1 Bristol Rovers

A brilliant hat-trick from Craig Davies saw off Bristol Rovers as Stockport re-affirmed their play-off credentials.

Davies opened the scoring just before the half-hour when he smashed home from eight yards after Tommy Rowe's set-up.

Rovers levelled after 40 minutes with a fine curling shot from Craig Disley, but Davies restored the lead with a header on the stroke of half-time.

The visitors pressed again but, in injury time, Davies fired into the roof of the net with a shot.
