Rochdale 2-1 Bristol Rovs

Rochdale fought back from a goal down to confirm their position in the Division Three play-offs with victory over Bristol Rovers.

Dale had a slight chance of sneaking into the final automatic promotion spot, but they will now face a play-off semi-final clash with Rushden & Diamonds.

James Thomas fired Rovers in front after 28 minutes following some excellent early pressure from the visitors.

However, Rochdale equalised through Paul Simpson on 63 minutes and Alan McLoughlin then scored from the penalty spot to complete the comeback five minutes from time.


Rochdale: Edwards, Evans, Jobson, Griffiths, Doughty, Durkan, McLoughlin, Oliver, Simpson, Platt, McEvilly. Subs: Gilks, Flitcroft, Coleman, McCourt, Atkinson.

Bristol Rovers: Howie, Carlos Lopez, Foster, Trought, Challis, Carlisle, Toner, Astafjevs, McKeever, Quinn, Thomas. Subs: Clarke, Arndale, Scott, Andrew Shore, Gilroy.

Referee: M Cowburn (Blackpool).
