Notts County 1-2 Rochdale

Peter Vincenti's second-half strike saw Rochdale come from behind to beat struggling Notts County at Meadow Lane.

The hosts had led when Garry Thompson headed in at the far post from Elliott Whitehouse's looping, defected cross.

Ian Henderson then drew Rochdale level, capitalising on a Mike Edwards' back header which had fallen too short.

After the break, a Henderson effort hit the post and fell to Vincenti, who slotted in to win the game and move Rochdale up to 10th in League One.

The Magpies have now lost eight of their last 11 games and remain without a home win since 17 January.

Notts County manager Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Nottingham:

Derry on Notts County v Rochdale

"I think that with the run of results that we've had, there's no point making excuses.

"We had enough opportunities out there in the first half to put it to bed but we didn't and that's been the story of our season.

"We have had enough chances to win football games but we haven't done so. We find ourselves in a real dogfight now."
