Matt Taylor
Matt Taylor has scored four goals in Bristol Rovers's last four away matches

Bristol Rovers came from behind to earn a fourth straight League Two away win with victory at Cambridge United.

The hosts took the lead when Barry Corr nodded in his eighth goal of the season from Harrison Dunk's left-wing cross.

Ellis Harrison tapped in an equaliser on the rebound after the break when Chris Dunn parried Matt Taylor's shot.

The turnaround was completed late on as Taylor capitalised on a poor backpass from Greg Taylor to round the keeper and calmly move Rovers up to ninth.
