McCall hoping for more creativity as Scunthorpe face Dale

Scunthorpe boss Stuart McCall is hoping his side can be more creative as they welcome Rochdale to Glanford Park tomorrow.

McCall is hoping to excite the fans in his first home league game in charge against Keith Hill’s men who are unbeaten on their travels in the league this season.

“Certainly at home the onus is on us to excite the fans and get balls into the box and shots on goal”, McCall told the press.

“I’ve watched all the games (from this season), and I think we’ve been slightly too easy to play against, with teams having too many opportunities against us. On the other side, we’ve not been creative enough.

“There were times on Tuesday night where we got in good areas and then came back out. It’s alright keeping possession of the football but we’re here to put shots on goal and get crosses into the box.

“We’ve worked on that on Thursday and I think we have to find a system that suits the players we’ve got and enables us to create more opportunities, which will hopefully result in more goals but also keep us a little more solid because we’ve conceded too many. There’s a lot of work to do but we’re looking forward to doing that.”
