Wil­liams look­ing to play his part in lift­ing

Rochdale Observer - - SPORT -

JOR­DAN Wil­liams be­lieves Rochdale can re­cover from their slow start to the sea­son and once again chal­lenge for a play-off place.

Keith Hill’s side have pushed for a top-six fin­ish in the last three sea­sons de­spite one of the small­est bud­gets in League One.

A 3-0 vic­tory against Gilling­ham made it back to back home wins and Wil­liams, on a six-month loan from An­field, reck­ons Dale’s sea­son is just get­ting go­ing.

“We haven’t had the best of starts but the last two per­for­mances have been re­ally pos­i­tive and we’re just look­ing to build on that now,” he said.

“We’ve got a full squad com­ing to­gether now after ill­ness and in­juries, which is great for all of us be­cause it will al­low us to push one an­other – ev­ery week you have got to do well now to stay in the team.

“The gaffer was happy with us though we felt we could have con­trolled the game a bit bet­ter at times. I thought in the first half we could ave scored a few more and made things more com­fort­able, but we’ve got the win and we’re all made up.”

Wil­liams is rel­ish­ing the op­por­tu­nity to play on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

“I’m lov­ing it here, I’ve come here to play and that’s what I’m do­ing. I’ve been on loan a cou­ple of time be­fore and I’ve played in League One, so I knew what it was about. There’s noth­ing bet­ter than go­ing out and play­ing.

“The gaffer was happy with us on Satur­day though we felt we could have con­trolled the game a bit bet­ter at times. I thought in the first half we could ave scored a few more and made things more com­fort­able, but we’ve got the win and we’re all made up.

“Had they scored we might have come un­der a bit of pres­sure but luck­ily we scored the third.
