Rochdale has had an average start to the season, but certain performances from certain players show that they can cause their opponents an issue or two on their day…
Rochdale have won two, drawn three and lost one league game in EFL League One so far, leaving them in eleventh place. With regards to Rochdale’s usual form, things are actually on the up in Rochdale this season.
When The Dale beat Bolton 5-2 in the Football League Trophy, the weakness of their opponent doesn’t give much insight as to how Rochdale will cope with the competition.
However, some performances from their young players have given an insight as to what Rochdale could offer this season. These 2 youngsters, in particular, could see them surpass Man City u23s in the next round of the Football League Trophy…
This 23-year-old local lad striker will be keen to put in a good performance against Man City u23s. He has 2 goals and 3 assists in 6 games so far in League One and is fast becoming one of competition’s most prolific forwards.
Morley, who is only 19, has become a first-choice midfielder for Barry-Murphy’s side. He has featured in 5 league games, scoring 2 goals and putting in some fantastic performances.
With Morley in the middle of the park and Camps up top, Rochdale’s attacking threat could be brutal over the coming years should they keep hold of these talents. Should they both feature against Man City u23s, they will most certainly cause their fellow footballing youngsters some serious problems.
