Midfielder Matty Lund has said he couldn’t have been more delighted to have made his return to the pitch in the Lancashire Senior Cup clash against Manchester United last week.

Having been out with a knee injury since pre season, Lund got 90 minutes under his belt in that game, before returning to the starting eleven for the Burton fixture last weekend, and having come through the game will no ill effects once more, he told the Official Site that it was definitely ‘great to be back’ but he knows as he gets fitter and sharper there will be a lot more to come from him again.

‘It`s great to be back. It feels like a very long time when you`re out. It`s good to be back playing and hopefully I can stay fit for the rest of the season. It was frustrating being injured, especially when the lads have been doing well. I just wanted to be out there helping them and to keep the good form going.’

As for the game against Burton itself which Rochdale lost one nil, obviously that was disappointing for him, and like the gaffer Keith Hill he referenced the state of the sticky pitch which certainly didn’t help us, but he also knew we could’ve done better in any event.

‘It was tough for us, they kind of stopped us from playing with the surface. The pitch caused a problem for us. It was a bit dry and slow, and it prevented us from playing our normal football, but I don`t think it`s an excuse – we just never got to our full potential. We`re better than that and we know we are. We never really created enough chances, never really created the stuff that we normally do, which was a bit unfortunate for us. It was disappointing to lose but we need to build for next week (Scunthorpe).”

Lund went on to say that everyone was expecting another tough match against Scunthorpe, so we would definitely have to be more on it than we were in the last game.

“Scunthorpe will be a good team to play against – they`re a good side and hopefully we can get three points. It will also be good to get back to Spotland. We need to make that place a fortress this year and pick up points there.’
