I thought it was an excellent performance overall. I like Rochdale. I like what Brian is doing there. They move the ball really well so we knew it was going to be a game where we were going to be tested in terms of our shape. I thought we pressed really well and we stepped up things in the second half. We managed to start dominating. We created chances and played a lot of the young lads. This is the fifth week we have been back in so this would normally still be pre-season. It’s the first 90 minutes for a lot of those lads. I thought the energy and the fitness shone through. Credit to them. I was very, very pleased with that performance. Moses Odubajo is tackled by Rochdale's Matthew Lund. (Image: CameraSport - Dave Howarth) What was your thinking behind making 11 changes tonight? Apart from a couple of the younger ones Granty and Ciaran Brennan, the others are first-team players. Alex Hunt and Shawy have been training with us since last season and everybody else on that pitch was a first-team squad players. I didn’t have any worries in putting them in; they are first team players. It was important for them to get minutes as well. We put a lot of energy into Saturday. It was important these guys got minutes as well because the squad is going to be needed. We are building that fitness while trying to win games so I was very pleased with tonight and the weekend as well. Were you pleased with the patience shown? We studied them really hard. Rochdale like to play very good football and we knew it was going to be a test and we were ready for it. We knew we had to grind it down and we probably missed a couple of good opportunities in the first half. But I said to them at half-time ‘don’t let what is going to be written afterwards about clinical edge ruin your night’ so I told them to go out and push their fitness even more and get your goals.

We were very unlucky not to score more. There were some good saves and we hit the crossbar. It was a very good performance. How pleased are you for Elias Kachunga to get off the mark? It was a great header and a great ball in from Palms. We had worked on Rochdale and thought if we could get it wide and get some crosses in then we could score goals. We put a lot of crosses in and that was the game plan. I am delighted. It was an excellent performance. We knew it was going to be a tough test. Rochdale play exceptional football and we tried to match it. I think our fitness levels from since we returned are really high and it was good to get 90 minutes into all of those lads as well. There were a couple of debuts with Ciaran and Conor coming on. How big is that for the club that academy prospects are getting their chance? It’s important and I’ve said it all along. If you are at a club with an academy, what’s the point in having it if you are not going to use it? Of course, they have to be right and at a level where they can compete. A couple are behind the others. Alex and Shawy especially have excelled a little bit more in terms of physically and with that intensity but the others are training hard. But I thought Ciaran Brennan was excellent tonight on his debut.

. He just tired a little bit towards the end and that’s why we made the substitution and then Conor came on and got his first taste of football is very good.

I think there is a decent enough crop that can develop under us and we will have a look at what is best for them moving forward. Right now they are contributing and that's what you want at a football club. Could a couple of the youngsters go out before the window closes? It will depend on where the squad ends up by the end of this window. I want to strengthen but that's an ongoing situation and we will see what happens with that. There is nothing imminent at the moment. There is going to be a lot of young lads, regardless of what the squad looks like (at the end of the window), in the first team and contributing. You lost a lot of goals from last season but how pleased are you that Josh, Jordan and Elias have all got off the mark? I just spoke to Adam. He was so unfortunate not to have a goal tonight. Adam Reach was excellent tonight. It was a top performance and he deserved a goal. He was very unlucky not to have a couple of goals. But it is always going (that the strikers are scoring) and that's another clean sheet. We have four clean sheets if you include Leicester as well. It is not always going to be that way but the attitude was the most pleasing bit and I have talked about that in each and every game. I want us to show that in each and every game regardless of the result. We have been excellent so far but there is a long way to go. We have won a couple of games in a row. I am pleased with the players but we know there is a really tough road ahead of us.

Ipswich or Fulham? They are both long trips! What I want is a home game. I am always away from home in the cups. We are just concentrating on ourselves and trying to build on what we have done for what will be a big season for us. How impressed were you with Fisayo Dele-Bashiru in midfield? I thought him Joey and Alex Hunt were incredible with their work rate and intensity. To press like that for 90 minutes shows how hard the players have worked. Normal pre-seasons are six weeks and we are in the fifth week. Normally you are not hitting your full peak until probably two or three weeks into that seventh and eighth weeks. We have worked hard to accelerate that and to see that pressing and energy all the way to the end was pleasing. Sign up to our dedicated Sheffield Wednesday newsletter Why you should sign up?

Fizz and Alex are good young lads and you can see the potential with them. It is still just potential but they are working in the right way to get better. How likely is it that you will be able to bring in another new face before the weekend? That's the plan but there is nothing imminent. We are trying but it is not easy. There is competition and when there is competition it becomes more expensive. We cut our cloth accordingly in the summer, which I'm fully on board with, and my idea is to bring in as many good players to help the group but I have to adjust that plan and fit in with the club which I'm happy to do. I am trying to get a squad together that compete and show the attitude we have done in these games so far. So far so good but there is a lot of work ahead of us and the lads know that as well. As good as it has been in terms of the results and some of the performances, there is a lot of work to be done.
