Pay on the gate at AFC Wimbledon

New manager Stuart McCall was on course to win his first match as United’s manager, although Rochdale mounted a comeback to make the game 3-3.

Colclough, who scored United’s second goal in the match, told iFollow Iron: “I was delighted to get my first goal for the club and hopefully it is the first of many, but it has been overshadowed by not winning the game. 

“In the first half we started really well, put them on the back foot and stopped them playing any football. 

“We created a lot of chances and went in at half-time 2-0 up, but then we came out for the second half and the game became like a basketball match, which is not what we wanted.”

He added: “It is disappointing.”

Despite the eventual result, the 23-year-old is determined to bounce back in Iron’s next match against AFC Wimbledon.

“We have said in the dressing room that it feels more like a defeat than a draw,” Colclough said. “When you go 2-0 up and 3-1 up you should go on to win the game, but it is something we can learn from and bounce back from.”

It was Colclough’s first start in an Iron shirt and he hopes that he has done enough to retain it.

He said: “I got the message when I first came here that I was going to have to work my way into the team and the gaffer has given me a chance. 

“Hopefully I can do well, continue to improve and pick up some points.”
