Rochdale move to summit

Next Story →

Leading scorer Chris Dagnall scored twice as Rochdale went to the top of Coca-Cola League Two with a 3-0 win at Bradford.

Dale's sixth away win in seven matches came after Dagnall put them in front on 12 minutes before the striker added his second with a mishit effort. Chris O'Grady's scored Rochdale's third after 57 minutes as the visitors moved a point clear at the summit.

Brett Pitman went from hero to zero as Bournemouth lost top spot after drawing 1-1 at Barnet.

The striker had equalised for the Cherries after John O'Flynn had put the hosts in front, but he squandered the chance to win all three points when his second-half penalty was saved by Jake Cole.

Rotherham's run of three league wins was ended by Shrewsbury, who won for only the second time in 10 games with a 2-0 triumph at the Prostar Stadium.

Dave Hibbert's 31st-minute penalty was saved by Andy Warrington but the United keeper was beaten from 25 yards after 43 minutes by on-loan Waide Fairhurst's low drive. Jamie Devitt, on loan from Hull, secured the win two minutes from time with a deflected effort.

Three quick first-half goals and a sublime lob from Lee Hughes saw Notts County secure a 4-0 triumph that piled more misery on bottom side Darlington .

Luke Rodgers tapped in from close range after 13 minutes to open the scoring and the hosts doubled their lead 60 seconds through a Hughes header.

Ben Davies finished off a County breakaway after 17 minutes before Hughes grabbed his fifth goal in four games with a perfectly executed lob.

Aldershot ended a run of seven away games without a win with a 5-2 victory at Dagenham & Redbridge.
