Maxwell: We need to continue our positive style of play

14 January 2016

Keeper was the hero agaisnt the Dale in September

Goalkeeper Chris Maxwell wants Town to continue their dominant displays when they visit Rochdale on Saturday afternoon.

The Welshman has been impressed with recent performances, and believes they can be buoyed by their start to 2016.

Maxwell was the hero when the two sides last met at Highbury back in September, as he kept out a stoppage time penalty to deny Dale claiming all three points.

Ahead of this weekend’s game, he said: “It’s going to be a difficult game for us on Saturday and it’s January time as well so the weather isn't going to be great for it.

“We’re hoping the pitch will be decent but you never know going in to it at this time of year.

“We’re going into it though off the back of two positive results against Bury in the league and Barnsley in the JPT first leg.

“I felt we did enough to win the game at Oakwell though, but it’s back to league action now and we have to continue this momentum we’ve had in 2016.

“We’re playing a style that is positive at the moment and we’re dominating a lot of the play. You only need to see the amount of chances we’re creating to see that.

“Saturday won’t be any different as long as we stick to the game plan and listen and trust the manager and his staff.”

And Maxwell is hoping the travelling Cod Army will once again turn out to support Steven Pressley’s side on Saturday.

“It’s massive for us especially from the players point of view to see as many fans in the away end. It really does have an impact on performance.

“They’ve come out in their numbers for games at Blackpool and Barnsley recently, and they were vocal throughout. We want to see them every week.”
