Devante Rodney On Chester Goal & Pre-Season

11 July 2022

Devante Rodney reflects on Dale’s pre-season friendly against Chester and scoring in the 1-0 victory…

The forward, who joined the club last month, netted ten minutes after the restart to break the deadlock.

“It was a good game - it was competitive,” said the 24-year-old. 

“No matter what game it is, when the ball hits the back of the net, there’s no better feeling. When Jimmy Keohane pulls it back, it’s all about hitting the target and thankfully I did that.”

Rodney was part of the eleven who played the second half at the Deva Stadium on Saturday and he was pleased to get 45 minutes under his belt. 

“Game time is really important. Training has been really tough but you can’t get that game tempo. It takes a while to get to match fitness so I think 45 minutes has been good for everyone, and I’ll get sharper game by game. We did a bit if running at the end there to top it up as well so it has been a tough day.”

And he says all focus now is getting for the start of the 2022/23 campaign. 

“That’s the main target now, that home game against Crewe, on Juy 30th. Everyone is going to be grafting everyday to make sure we’re ready for that game.”
