We're On The Same Page - Oduroh

17 November 2023

Kwaku Oduroh says there is more to come from Dale this season.

The full-back, speaking ahead of Saturday’s game at home to Aldershot Town, believes Dale’s general play in games so far this campaign should have returned more points.

He says the whole team are on the same page and will stick to the process they believe in.

“One thing that Jimmy McNulty mentioned, which has stuck in my head, was that we should never be too low when times get tough,” said Oduroh.

“So, we’re just continuing as we have been, sticking to the process that we believe in.

“We’re doing everything to the best of our ability in training. We believe in the manager's plan for us. We dust ourselves down and moving on to the next game, we continue to work hard in training.

“We all have that forgiving mentality. Thinking about the next moment. The manager has spoken about that a lot. We don’t beat ourselves up too much.

“I think the result [against Wealdstone] was harsh and the way we lost as well. We played some good football, I think that we were brave. I don’t think that the score line was fair, but that’s football, isn’t it?

“I would definitely say that we’ve adopted that kind of mentality, not just the players but the staff as well.

“I think being on the same page helps because we are a new team, we’re a new mix of players.

“It is hard to get everyone on the same page so quickly, but I think we’ve done that very well and I think that we have still got so much to come in terms of final outcomes in games. “It’s helped from top to bottom that everyone is aware of what the gaffer wants. The players and the staff, we lead that, and we drive it every single day and the message is clear to all the members of the team.”

Oduroh hopes Dale can put on a performance in front of the supporters on Saturday and says he has enjoyed his time at the club so far.

“When we play in front of the home crowd we always look forward to it. With the work that we’re doing in training, we want to have to the results and the performances to match.

“I think the fans deserve that, because they are always there cheering us on.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better start to playing football here. I’ve been made to feel very welcome by the fans, the players and the staff.

“I enjoy training, playing and even when it’s tough, I enjoy the whole process. I feel like a lot of things are going well and I’m looking forward to kicking on.”
