Luton 1-1 Rochdale

An inspired half-time switch by Keith Hill helped Rochdale secure a play-off place with a deserved draw at Luton.

Dale had looked well off the pace as they trailed at the break to Tom Craddock's penalty, given after Nathan Stanton had pushed Chris Martin.

But a double substitution at the break paid dividends, when Joe Thompson crossed for fellow replacement Adam Rundle to level with a clinical finish.

And Adam Le Fondre could have won it late on but for a fine Dean Brill save.
