Manager Neil Harris has hailed an ‘excellent’ spirit within the camp ahead of this weekend’s visit of Rochdale.

Audio – Harris Ahead Of Rochdale

Hosting Keith Hill’s side at The Den as we go in search of our first home win of the campaign, Harris was in his normal bouyant mood – confident it would come together for us shortly.

Speaking to the official site ahead of the game, Harris knows with a setback against Southend United and other blows so far this campaign, facing an in-form and fifth placed Dale won’t be an easy task but he knows performances largely have been positive, so it’s about building on them and then making our chances count so hopefully we can get on a roll.

‘We’re looking forward to the challenge. We’ve had another good week; we know what we are up against but we are concentrating on us while be respectful to the opposition. We want to build on four good performances – Peterborough, Crewe, Port Vale and Southend. We do want to get a win on Saturday and that is the main priority, but the spirit is excellent and the boys are buzzing.’

Harris goes on to say that training so far this week has been ‘top drawer’ and that went for every session, so he knows that if we keep going as we are and doing the right things on and off the pitch, then that win will come and it should then be the first of many he hoped.

Talking about the injury situation at the club at the minute, he went on to explain that with Paris Cowan-Hall out following his Development Squad injury against Coventry and Byron Webster set to have his ankle assessed late on, Cowan-Hall’s absence would open the door potentially for Lee Martin to make a return following his own recovery from injury.

‘Everybody who is fit is always in the contention to be in the squad. Losing Paris is a blow because he came on and did well in spells for the last half an hour or so on Saturday, so that’s disappointing. Just as he starts to get going a bit he has a set-back so it is a shame for the lad and for us. Byron obviously got a bad whack on Saturday so we will have to monitor him all the way up to kick-off. Lee is fit and healthy and wants to be involved so he certainly comes into the thinking for the weekend.’
