Owen Dale has told the club’s official website that he has been working on his end product because he knows that is the only way he is going to force your way into the team on a regular basis.
Dale certainly produced the goods against Accrington Stanley in the FA Cup on Saturday, by winning the penalty that made it 2-0 thanks to Chris Porter’s finely taken spot kick and then his blistering run led to the Accrington defender Mark Hughes being sent off for a professional foul.
Dale knows that he has to score or create goals to see off the competition from the likes of Callum Ainley and a fit-again Daniel Powell.
Dale told the club’s official website: “I’ve been working really hard on my end product, I think that’s what had been lacking in my last few performances, so it was good to win the penalty and I feel like I put some good balls in the box.
“I was gutted when the defender chopped me down but it led to the sending off, which meant we could go on and control the game.
“I’m just taking it game by game and I’m getting more and more confident, and I’m really enjoying being out there.
“I thought we were very professional, very mature and played some good football. We thoroughly deserved the win.
“At the moment we have so much confidence and we believe we can beat anyone.”
