Josh Daniels previews Town's fixture with Rochdale AFC

Josh Daniels previews Town's Sky Bet League One away fixture with Rochdale AFC.

Shrewsbury Town travel to Rochdale AFC's Spotland Stadium tomorrow evening for Town's latest Sky Bet League One away fixture.

The Salop squad will be full of determination when going against the Dale, as Steve Cotterill's men will be searching for a return to winning ways away from home.

Josh Daniels is looking forward to the fixture and hopes to see his team return to winning ways against the home side.

On playing new positions:

"I am learning. I am getting used to a new role and that can be draining but I am loving every minute of it. The more minutes I play, the better I will get. I love playing football and I don't care where it is. You can see what players like Stuart Dallas can do for Leeds, he came over as a winger and can play anywhere.

"It adds more options to my game. I came here as a left-winger but it's adding another dimension to my game - that can only help me in the long run. I can bring energy to the team and help the team attack - that's what I'm usually good at.

"It's a learning curve of balancing energy, defence, attack and when to use them. It's quite a demanding role but I always want to put a shift in for the team. It's more about timing, that's what I've learnt."

On the fixture:

"I saw Rochdale play earlier on in the season and they have a lot of Irish players there. I know they can be very good on the ball, they're technically very good. On their day, they can pop the ball around really well. Like teams higher up the table, they do try to play and that suits our game.

"I was probably expecting not to be in the team as much when I first came over but I was thrown in. I have played a few different positions but I'm just excited to be playing football.

"We are going there to try and do things right like we always do and hopefully we can start another run. Those runs show how far we have come but we know they are a good team on their day. When we are at our best, we don't take our foot off the gas - we need to do that again."
