    Highlights of the Sky Bet League One match between Shrewsbury and Rochdale.

    Shrewsbury climbed out of the Sky Bet League One relegation zone with a 1-0 victory against Rochdale.

    On-loan Barnsley striker Stefan Payne's first goal for Shrewsbury was enough to earn Paul Hurst's side a first win since February 28.

    Payne struck in the 16th minute when he broke into the box and clinically fired a low shot past advancing goalkeeper Conrad Logan.

    Midfielder Bryn Morris twice went close for the hosts either side of the goal, driving wide from 20 yards and then hammering a powerful shot from just inside the penalty area narrowly over the bar.

    Rochdale carried little first-half threat, with a free kick from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing which cleared the bar, their only notable effort.

    Shaun Whalley lifted a free kick over for the hosts in the second half while Junior Brown and substitute Stephen Humphrys both flashed efforts just off target.
