Rochdale 1-1 Gillingham

John Egan's equaliser at fellow League One play-off hopefuls Rochdale ensured Gillingham remain in the top six.

The hosts took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Nathaniel Mendez-Laing played in Callum Camps to finish.

Camps and Donal McDermott were both denied by Gills keeper Stuart Nelson in the second half.

The visitors levelled when Egan headed in Jermaine McGlashan's right-wing delivery to stay in the top six on goal difference over Barnsley.

Camps' goal came shortly after an announcement that the midfielder had left his car's lights on outside Spotland.
