The returning Jamie Allen was close to a goal just before the interval when he met Fraser’s pull back with a fierce drive from the edge of the area beaten away by Lillis.
The Dale stopper was called into action in the opening minutes of the second period to keep out Akins’ low drive.
But Dale started to give home supporters some- thing to cheer as they upped their game and pressed the visitors back. Camps forced the ball through a gap for Inman to blast at goal, Collins palming his effort away and the home side went closer still on 55 minutes when Gillam’s shot took a deflection, beating Collins but flying into the side netting. Another chance, for Henderson, 12 yards out, followed a similar path wide.
MJ Williams had the ball in the net following a free-kick on the left by Inman but the defender’s effort was ruled out for a foul.
Henderson was a whisker away when his run towards the Burton box ended with a swerving shot inches over the crossbar.
The home side had deserved a foothold in the game but were dealt a cruel sucker punch in the 78th minute when Fraser won the ball in midfield and fed MyersHarness and he held off his marker before slipping a neat angled pass to sub Liam Boyce, who eased the ball wide of Lillis and into the bottom corner of the goal.
And Myers-Harness completed the scoring when he rifled home a left-footed shot in the 86th minute.
