Finish more chances and we’ll be up there
CALLUM Camps remains confident that Rochdale can avoid relegation despite a frustrating 1-1 draw at play-off chasing Scunthorpe United.
Dale were the better side for large portions of the game, opening the scoring on 20 minutes with a long-range effort from Camps, following a corner, before Ivan Toney’s equaliser.
Camps said: “We think we should’ve won the game today and that would’ve been three points off (safety).
“I think we played better football than they did… we need to start finishing more and then we’ll be up there.”
Rochdale sit five points from League One safety with ten games remaining, but Dale’s number ten says the squad still believe that survival is possible.
“We all believe and we’re all working as hard as we can every game.
“At home, teams have been coming and just sitting in on us and we haven’t been able to break them down but, away from home, I think we’ve been playing well.
“Every game’s going to be a hard game for us.
“We’ve just got to try and get the results to stay up.”
The midfielder was also delighted to score his second league goal of the campaign: “I’ve been waiting for a goal for a bit this season, I’d not scored one for a few months.
“I’ve had quite a few chances on the edge of the box… luckily it found the bottom corner.”
Rochdale face Shrewsbury Town on Good Friday before a local derby against fellow strugglers Bury the following Tuesday.
