Mini Rochdale Round Up

Mini Rochdale Round Up

Chris Beech talks about the fans in the game against Bury, Peter Cavanagh is ruled out with injury and Callum Camps is off on International duty.

Assistant manager Chris Beech has given his response to our narrow victory over Bury last weekend and he told the Official Site of the thanks everybody at the club wanted to give the fans for their efforts during the game.

'It definitely means something to myself, Keith and the players. We were representing the supporters and the town, and I thought the supporters were tremendous.'

Beech admitted that the players were feeling the nerves ahead of the game, but thankfully they relaxed nicely into it and stuck to the task at hand.

Going down to ten men he admitted posed another test, but he felt the players battled admirably against that advantage and limited Bury's ability to pass the ball round us and use the extra man to any good effect.

For skipper Peter Cavanagh, it's been announced that he will now miss the next six weeks of action owing to an Achilles injury.

After his sending off against Burton and the three match ban he was handed, Beech confirmed that he missed the game against Bury after being sent for a scan after complaining that something wasn't quite right and he was feeling aches and soreness when he knew he shouldn't have been.

The scan showed some disruption in his Achilles and the surgeon has said he'll need up to six weeks for the problem to heal.

Risking him any further could've led to a full rupture and that's something obviously everybody wants to avoid, so for now just to keep his fitness up he's doing non weight bearing exercise like swimming and bike work so he can return in as good a shape as possible as running is completely out of the question.

The final news of the day is that second year scholar Callum Camps has now flown out to Vienna to join the Northern Ireland U19 squad for their friendly against Akademie FK Austria Vien.
