But three substitutions at half-time sparked the visitors back into life as they salvaged a share of the spoils

Two minutes later, the Shrimpers doubled their lead when Leonard collected a pass from Stephen McLaughlin before stroking a low shot into the bottom left hand corner of the net

However, Rochdale stepped things up after the break and got back into the game in the 63rd minute when a deflected, 14-yard volley from Joe Bunney flew into the back of the net

Michael Rose equalised 14 minutes later with a fine, 25 yard free-kick which curled into the bottom left hand corner

Calvin Andrew was then denied by Daniel Bentley as Rochdale looked for a late winner before they had strong shouts for a penalty waved away when Luke Prosser appeared to pull Ian Henderson back in the area
