“It was bril­liant goal from Calvin, but what gave me more en­thu­si­asm was his per­for­mance.

“It was his com­mit­ment, his en­deav­our and his putting their cen­tral de­fend­ers un­der pres­sure.

“You want cen­tre­for­wards to work cen­tral de­fend­ers in both boxes and I thought he was ex­cel­lent. He’s added to­wards his game and his func­tion with a goal.”

Hav­ing se­cured their place in the next round of the FA Cup, Dale’s thoughts were al­ready turn­ing to an­other com­pe­ti­tion as they pre­pared for the mid­week clash against Lin­coln City.

“It’s an­other great op­por­tu­nity, but un­for­tu­nately it’s not on a great pitch.

“I want to play a cer­tain way and I don’t think the pitch is sup­port­ing that and I don’t think it’s one per­son’s sole re­spon­si­bil­ity I think it’s a col­lec­tive amount of mis­takes.”
