Jordan Williams scored his first EFL goal to see Keith Hill’s Rochdale come from behind to take the lead in the second half at Shrewsbury.

The home side had taken the lead from the penalty spot shortly after the half hour through Ollie Norburn, but Bradden Inman drew Dale level in added time at the end of the first half.

But two goals in seven second-half minutes secured the points for the Shrews.

Manager Keith Hill talking to the Rochdale website said:  “There was too much honesty in the way that we defended at times. When I talk about honesty, I mean a bit of naivety. There were one or two fouls that we stayed up on instead of probably making the referee make a decision and I think that cost us, especially in the final third.

“We’ve got to marry the two – being in and out of possession – because I thought some of the play in possession was superb. We had control of the game but then it went end to end, and the end to end makes us a little bit vulnerable.

In League Two there were wins for both Bury and Oldham.

A dominant second-half saw the Shakers romp to a 4-0 victory against a 10-man Stevenage side. A brace from O’Shea, as well as goals from Mayor and O’Connell, saw Bury notch their 16th goal in their last 4 matches in all competitions.

Oldham Manager Frankie Bunn was pleased with the way his side reacted in the second half in the 3-1 win over Cambridge United .

The Latics fell behind to a wonder striker from George Maris, before goals from George Edmundson, Jordan Lyden and Callum Lang turned things around for Bunn’s men.
