HEREFORD manager Paul Caddis has called for patience and is aware of the danger FA Cup opponents Rochdale will bring to Edgar Street.

The Bulls host National League side Rochdale with the chance of winning £9,375 and a place in the first round.

“It will be a difficult game,” said Caddis. “They’ve just come out of League Two and full-time. We need to be patient and the supporters need to be patient because we’re going up a really good side and if we gung-ho then they will pick you off.

“We’ve got a chance like everybody else in the round and we’ll go and have a go.”

The Bulls come into the game with confidence after recording a 0-0 draw at a South Shields side who had not dropped a home point coming into the match.

“I thought at times we were very good, defensively, our shape, countering and the work ethic of our players was unbelievable,” said Caddis.

“Performances like that is what we want at the club. We’ve got Dan the kitman, Pat the analyst and Shaun the goalkeeper coach who don’t get paid a penny to be at this club.

“That performance is for them and the supporters who are different class. Whether we’ve got a big budget, small budget whatever it might be we fight for each other at this club.

“We’re in a good space, not getting too excited, we’re still a working progress but we are getting there."
