Rochdale 2-1 Morecambe

Rochdale maintained their push for automatic promotion in League Two after coming from behind to beat Morecambe.

Former Rochdale striker Jack Redshaw put the visitors ahead from six yards after Andrew Wright teed him up.

The home side equalised two minutes later when Scott Hogan beat two players to fire into the roof of the net.

Rochdale completed their comeback when Ian Henderson finished off a one-two with Matt Done by beating Morecambe goalkeeper Barry Roche from 18 yards.

Post-match: Rochdale assistant manager Chris Beech.

Rochdale assistant manager Chris Beech told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I thought we were edging the game without really having total control of it.

"The only time to look at a league table is at the end of the season.

"What you've got to look at is the next game that's in front of you, that's all you can do."
