Swindon Town Goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott was frustrated not to come away with all three points in the wake of his team's 0-0 draw with Rochdale this afternoon.

Wollacott had to make a few saves as he helped the Reds secure a share of the spoils this afternoon, and he spoke to the local media after to give his thoughts.

"We're probably a bit frustrated because we've set ourselves high frustrations," Wollacott said.

"I mean, it is a clean sheet and we didn't lose the game which is important, but I'm pretty sure we're allowed to be a bit frustrated not to get the three points.

"We made the most of it, we did our best and it was a bit frustrating that we couldn't play out as much as we wanted, but it is what it is.

"You have to believe in your methods, you have to stick with it and keep trying and we got success with it as well."

Wollacott also went on to reflect on his week, a week that saw him help Ghana qualify for the 2022 World Cup before being drawn in the same group as Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani.

"Crazy," Wollacott said when asked how his week was.

"Coming to Rochdale brought me down to earth, but it was probably one of the longest weeks I've had in my life but it seems it is all worth it.

'There was pressure on the game, not just to qualify for the World Cup but for the bragging rights of the country, but I just went into it treating it like another game of football, I didn't put too much pressure on myself and I'm obviously buzzing and delighted.

"I'm not that superstitious but I just made sure I had a solid week of training, I eat well and slept right and that gives you confidence.

"Playing for Ghana, I didn't realise before I went just how much expectation there is from the country and football is massive in Ghana, a lot of people follow it, so to deliver and make Ghana proud is the best feeling.

"It was probably one of the best feelings of my career."
