A good performance by Rochdale at weekend saw them be the better team for long spells, but still lose to Brentford. It left Steve Eyre looking to what might have been. Speaking to the BBC he said:

“I’m not too disappointed with how we’ve played, but there is room for improvement.”

Dale created a number of chances, but didn`t make their first half dominance count. With that in mind it can`t be too long until David Ball is moved from the bench to the first XI.

It also made it a strange decision to replace the livewire Harry Bunn during the game, and not the misfiring Grimes.

Eyre though, feels the opposition have to take some credit:

“They played on the counter-attack quite quickly and they went away with three points, so if that was their game plan, well done. I thought we were well worthy of our equaliser and at that point I thought we would go on and push on to win it.’

Nice approach work, but without a clinical edge has been the story of Rochdale`s season so far, and it`s something they need to rectify quickly. Their next game is away to Sheffield United.
