📝 Match Preview: Rochdale (A)

City back on the road this weekend

26 November 2021

Exeter City will look to begin an unbeaten run as they travel to the Crown Oil Arena to take on Rochdale this Saturday.

Having seen their 20 match unbeaten run ended at the hands of Colchester United on Tuesday following a 3-1 defeat, Matt Taylor's men are keen to make amends and begin another good spell of form. 

The Dale are unbeaten in seven in the league and go into Saturday's match on the back of a 2-2 draw with Stevenage on their own patch. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

Matt has said that after their 3-1 defeat in Essex in midweek, the group remained positive and are keen to put things right. 

"It was a real moment, because it was great to hear voices after that defeat. Sometimes players wait to hear their manager's voice, or the captain's, but the fact they said the right things at the right time shows we have leaders in this squad," he said. 

"We go now and face a Rochdale side who are an interesting side to prepare for. They are a side who have outstanding players at this level. They score goals, especially at home, and they score early. 

"They've been in League One recently, so we have to understand the type of side we are up against."
