Summer signing Lewis Alessandra has said he was delighted to finally make his Rochdale debut in the weekend’s loss to Burton, but obviously he’d have liked to have marked it with a point if not the victory itself – especially with him unable to find the net on the day.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game that saw his maiden bow come as a second half substitute, Alessandra explained.

‘I`ve been looking forward to it. When you look at our squad, not just the starting eleven, but the squad as a whole, then I knew it was going to be difficult to break into the team. I`m glad I got some game time today but I`m disappointed we`ve not been able to get anything out of the game. As a forward player, you want to try and affect the game and maybe get a goal back for us but unfortunately that hasn`t happened today.’

With Alessandra being a local lad, he knows the club relatively well even though he’s settling in still himself following his arrival from Plymouth Argyle the other month, and he’s convinced we have more than enough quality to challenge for a good season this year.

‘There`s a top group of lads here – I know everyone says that but they actually are. I don`t think the Gaffer would have anyone in the camp who is a bad egg, so I`m enjoying it. I`m just going to keep working hard and hopefully take my chance when it comes. I was down there (Plymouth) on my own so it`s nice to be back up North and to see my family a lot more often. It`s also good to make the step up as well. The move wasn`t just about coming home, it was also about coming to a team that I thought would do well, and I feel that we will do well.’
