Dodds expects a tough game on Saturday, but is confident

Louis Dodds is expecting another tough game at the weekend when the team travel to Morecambe, but feels the team are capable of turning it on, despite the midweek defeat at Accrington.

He said: “They always have a nice bright start so we have got to be wary of them. Hopefully we can carry on the way we have been playing and if we don’t find a ‘keeper as good as the other night we should be fine.

“We are going there full of confidence .The major disappointment the other night was that we didn’t get anything out of the game after playing so well so hopefully we can rectify that against Morecambe.

“We should have a good following on Saturday and if we can attack them in the second half they might be the driving force we need to do that something extra. It will be nice if they are there in numbers and we can hear them nice and loud again.

“We are looking to get as many points as we can early doors because we know there will be appoint in the season when we have a little blip.

“It’s early days yet. If you look at the bottom end of the table there are teams there who will be fighting for promotion. It is only two games in and it’s anyone’s game.

“I think over the next five or six games we will see the league starting to shape up a little bit.

Louis is pleased to start the season in the team. He is enjoying his football and looking forward to what will hopefully be a good season from a personal point of view.

He continued: “I started well in pre-season, scored a few goals and then to get the all-clear and get told you are playing makes it all that running worthwhile – hopefully I will stay in the team a lot longer.

“The position I am playing in now sees me get a lot more of the ball and I can get a lot more creative, get a few more shots and set other people up, so I’m delighted to be playing in that position at the moment.

“If you look at our bench, quite a few of those players would walk into other League Two teams. I think the standard of the whole squad is brilliant and it makes people play better because they know if they have one slip up they are going to be dropped and the other lads on the bench are raring to go.”
