Bristol Rovers   2 - 1   Rochdale

Bristol Rovers 2-1 Rochdale

Bristol Rovers 2-1 Rochdale

A fine Chris Lines effort gave Bristol Rovers victory over Rochdale.

After Anthony Elding hit the post with a header, Jeff Hughes put the Pirates in front from the penalty spot after a foul by Marcus Holness on Jo Kuffour.

Lines then doubled the hosts' advantage with a rasping right-foot shot into the roof of the net.

Rochdale hit the woodwork again through Matt Done before Byron Anthony put Nicky Adams' cross past his own keeper to make for a nervy finish.


Rovers manager Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:

"We made a few poor decisions at 2-0 going towards injury time and obviously the own goal led to a nervous finish when we should have been playing it out but it was a good three points for us.

"We're ticking along, we're in the top half of the table ahead of some very big clubs, there's lots still to work on but the three points were important.

"It's still tight when you look above and immediately below us, but we want to look upwards and make progress."

Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"We're talking small margins which do dictate results and the penalty just before half-time changed the whole complexion of the game.

"The goal they got decided the fate of the game and their strategy changed in the second-half. They defended very deep and tried to hit us on the counter-attack.

"I can't endorse the kind of standard of refereeing we've seen today I just think it was appalling and disrespectful to the club and myself."
