Fin­ish more chances and we’ll be up there

Middleton Guardian - - SPORT - GE­ORGE KELSEY

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.
