"Rochdale will be another tough tie, as they all are in this competition.

"There are so many games in the opening month of the season - eight in 34 days - so the fact we've been drawn at home is a positive for us in terms of travelling.

"We will need to improve from last night's showing and if we do that, hopefully we can keep progressing in this competition.

"We need to learn from the mistakes we made last night and keep improving."
