Rovers lose at home to Rochdale

Kaid Mohamed had given Rovers a first half lead.

Bristol Rovers' hopes of avoiding the drop into the Conference have been dented after losing at home to promotion-chasing Rochdale this afternoon.

Rovers went ahead through Kaid Mohamed's strike in the 17th minute. But substitute Joe Bunney equalised in the first minute of the second half, before former Rovers' loanee Matthew Lund hit the winner in the 63rd minute.

Rovers remain third from bottom in League Two, but they could be in the relegation zone by 5pm if Northampton at least draw with Portsmouth.
