Midfielder Callum Camps sat down with the club and spoke about his return to Greater Manchester to face his former side, Rochdale.
Camps – who spent seven years at Dale before signing in the summer – has had a prolific start to his Cod Army campaign as he has already managed four goals in just seven games across three different competitions.
Ahead of the game, this is what Callum had to say:
“Everyone is just raring to go and get back onto winning ways in the league. We’ve had a week to train and get the last result out of our heads so, hopefully, we can hit the ground running in the next week and get maximum points.
“The manager, Brian [Barry-Murphy] is class. The way he talks to the young lads whilst playing has helped players progress. When they appointed him as manager, I thought that all the players would take to him – and it shows as the way he gets Rochdale to play is really good.”
On his return to the Crown Oil Arena…
“I’m not nervous, if you move to a new team in the same league, you’re obviously going to come up against your old club. It’s going to be good to go back and see some old faces – I’ve got some good mates there after playing at the club for years.
“It will be good to see some of those familiar faces in the staff, including Brian [Barry-Murphy], who I both played with and was coached but the main focus is that we are going there to win.”
On his start to the season…
“We got off to a good start, winning our first four games, and with the last two games we’ve played, the Peterborough one was a shock due to what happened so late in the game. We controlled the game but seemed to lack concentration at the end.
“With the Wimbledon one, they got the goal and we struggled to break them down. I don’t think anyone is really overthinking it as we are only three games into the season so these games aren’t going to define the season for us.
