Fleetwood gained an important three points with a narrow win over promotion rivals Rochdale.

Antoni Sarcevic put the away side ahead from the spot with a controversial penalty after Rhys Bennett was adjudged to have fouled Charlie Taylor.

Scott Hogan equalised for the hosts when he turned the ball in from close range following a corner.

Fleetwood's winner came late on, with Mark Roberts on hand to score after Nathan Pond's header hit the post.
