Matty Done says Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Wycombe Wanderers was “a pleasure to play in” as the side recorded their fourth consecutive win.
It was the 25-year-old’s second league start of the season and he says that he was happy to be involved from the start.
He told Dale Player: “It’s nine games in now and I’ve had to bide my time to get my chance. To go 3-0 up inside the first 15 minutes I thought it was going to be an easy day at the office, but we made hard work of it in the end. The first 30 minutes were probably the best we’ve been all season – we looked like scoring every time we went forward and we looked solid at the back. It was a pleasure to play in and to be back out there.
“But like I say, we gave them a chance and we can’t afford to do that with anyone in the league. Wycombe have done well because we’ve made hard of work it and they capitalised on that as the momentum changed once we gave them the goal.
“The lads have done brilliantly so far this season and the front lads have done superb. I’m not one for moaning – I get on with it, keep my head down and wait for my chance. I got it today and hopefully I’ve done enough to stay in the team now. We’ve got a great set of lads and I’m here to help. I’ve come in today and we’ve got another three points, so that’s four on the bounce now.”
Rochdale travel to Fratton Park this Saturday to face Portsmouth, and Done admits he looking forward to the encounter.
“It’s a pleasure to go and play at Pompey. We’ve got lads who have played in the Championship and Portsmouth are a Championship club with a great pitch and a great stadium so we’re going to go down there and thrive playing on that it. It suits our game when the pitches are like that and momentum is with us, so yes it’s a long journey but I can’t wait for it and we want to make it worthwhile.”
