Forster Looking To Cut Errors In Rochdale Clash

North Wales Crusaders head coach Carl Forster is targeting a return to winning ways this weekend as his side welcome Rochdale Hornets to Stadiwm CSM.

Forster's side sit third in Betfred League One, having lost just one of their opening four league games with the defeat coming a week ago away to a Keighley Cougars side hotly tipped for promotion.

Speaking ahead of the home clash against Rochdale, Forster said: "We come took positives from last weekend despite the defeat.

"Keighley isn't an easy place to go, you only have to look through their squad to realise their ambition is to go straight back up this year, but we went there gave a good account of ourselves and compete for large periods of the game.

"I've made no secret of the fact that I felt we were victims of our own errors last weekend, so our focus this week has been on getting back to basics, completing our sets and turning the ball over in good areas of the field.

"Sometimes we maybe need to be a bit smarter in our play, but I fully believe that if we cut out some of the errors in our game then we give ourselves every chance going into this weekend."

Rochdale arrive in North Wales sat fifth in League One with two wins from their opening five games. However, Forster is cautious of reading too much into their early season form: "I'm not looking too much into the results they've had so far.

"Rochdale are a very good side who will want to be comfortably within those play-off places come the end of the season, so there's no way that they'll be an easy ride come Sunday.

"They're a big club, have recruited well and I've made sure the lads know that our standards will need to be right up there if we want any chance of getting the two points on offer."
