Dou­ble hit of con­fi­dence as gap nar­rows

Middleton Guardian - - BYGONE DAYS -

SCOTT Wiseman has is­sued a warn­ing to teams in the lower reaches of League One – don’t write off Rochdale.

Keith Hill’s side col­lected an­other point against AFC Wim­ble­don on Satur­day to re­duce the gap be­tween them­selves and the safety zone. And with games in hand, Wiseman – on loan from Ch­ester­field for the rest of the sea­son – reck­ons Dale’s ri­vals will be twitch­ing.

The point against the Dons – them­selves in dan­ger of the drop into League Two – made it two wins and two draws from their last four games.

“It means so much more when we do get points and we are nar­row­ing the gap on the teams above us and we know that we still have games in hand on them - it’s like a dou­ble hit of con­fi­dence as we know we still have to play the team around us or play games in mid­week when they are not play­ing,” said Wiseman. “A lot of teams are draw­ing games or los­ing and they are not cre­at­ing chances – the fact is that we’re cre­at­ing not just one or two chances, it’s lit­er­ally dozens!

“It’s fright­en­ing the amount of chances we’re cre­at­ing and we could have re­ally put Wim­ble­don to the sword.

“It was a great per­for­mance and the boys couldn’t have done any more other than put the ball in the back of the net. It’s an­other draw, an­other game where we have not lost so that’s four on the spin now and it’s fan­tas­tic to keep the run go­ing.”
