Take the pos­i­tives for­ward says MJ


MJ Wil­liams has urged Rochdale to take the pos­i­tives from Sun­day’s FA Cup per­for­mance into this evening’s Check­a­trade Tro­phy clash against Old­ham.

Dale take on Lat­ics tonight at the Crown Oil Arena in the sec­ond round tie hav­ing lost 1-0 to League One lead­ers Portsmouth at the week­end.

Keith Hill’s men were un­for­tu­nate to lose the tie to a 90th minute de­flected goal.

But, as painful as the sec­ond round exit was, Wil­liams wants to focus on the pos­i­tives.

“I thought we were un­lucky with the de­flec­tion. It’s small mar­gins in the game,” said Wil­liams.

“I don’t think we de­served to lose the game.

“But we’ve got to push on now – we’ve got a big game on Wed­nes­day and then we go into Satur­day, and like I said, we have to take the pos­i­tives from the per­for­mance be­cause we’ve com­peted against a side top of League One.

“Ev­ery­one hates los­ing and we we’re all feel­ing down, but we’ve got a busy pe­riod com­ing up and we’ve just got to take ev­ery­thing we’re do­ing and all the hard work we’re putting in onto the pitch and pick up re­sults.

“We’re a very good team, it’s just that we haven’t got the con­sis­tency at this mo­ment in time to re­ally push up the ta­ble.”
