Phil Brown:"Prosser had concussion. He was sick on the pitch and at half-time but he still didn't want to come off.
"Two moments changed the game for us. Prosser's determination on the line & Hurst's moment of magic for the goal.
"It wasn't our best performance but credit should go to Rochdale because they are a good team.
"Both teams could've won the game but I thought a draw was a fair result."
