On 30 January 2012 Lund joined Bristol Rovers on a months loan, scoring his first two senior goals for his final loan appearance for the club.[14][15] In July 2012 he re-joined Bristol Rovers on loan following a successful spell. He scored on his final appearance of his second loan spell in a 2–1 win over Plymouth Argyle.[16] He joined Southend United on loan in February 2013.[17] He played 13 games for the Shrimpers scoring once against Northampton Town.[18][19] He was released by Stoke at the end of the 2012–13 season.[20]

Rochdale[edit]

Lund joined Rochdale on 21 June 2013 signing a two-year contract.[21]

On 31 October 2014, Lund signed a contract extension tying him to the club until summer 2016.[22]

On 17 December 2016, Lund scored his first career hat-trick, scoring all three of Rochdale's goals in a 3–2 win against Northampton Town.[23]
