Morecambe took a first half lead into the interval after opening the scoring from a free-kick six minutes before the break.

In the 70th minute, Jack Stewart fired Dale ahead with a low strike from the edge of the area.
Gillam netted his second of the game in stoppage time to ensure all three points for Rochdale, as he struck from the edge of the 18-yard box.
