Potter hoping to help Oxford United continue their sharp-shooting
And although the tricky winger would love to be playing a part in all the goals, he is happy while others are producing magic of their own to find the net.
Converting chances has been an issue for United in previous seasons, but they have found a rich vein of form so far.
The U’s have netted 11 goals from their four games, making them the sharpest shooters in Sky Bet League Two.
Only Peterborough and Coventry have better records in the entire Football League.
Potter grabbed two in the opening day win at Portsmouth and is keen to keep the good record intact as they take on Dale.
He said: “People have been taking their chances, whereas in the last couple of years we created them, but we didn’t take as many as we should have.
“So far this season we have been putting them away and long may it continue.
“We definitely want to keep that going against Rochdale and it helps when goals are coming from all over the pitch.
“Mulls (Johnny Mullins) and Rosie (Danny Rose) have a couple each, I don’t care who gets them as long as we keep scoring.”
The goals have taken United top of the table, but while they have won both away games fairly convincingly, at home it has been tougher.
They edged past Bury 2-1, before dropping their first points of the season with a 2-2 draw against Wycombe Wanderers last weekend.
Potter, 24, knows the U’s have not produced their best football at the Kassam Stadium.
He said: “We have to make the Kassam into a place where teams don’t want to come.
“If we do come out with three more points we can’t call it a perfect start because we’ve had a draw, but we couldn’t really wish for a better one.
“Four points at home isn’t a bad total, especially when we’ve got six on the road, but it is frustrating, especially when you have a big crowd there and want to please them.
“We need to find ways to break these teams down and beat them when we’re at home.
“The gaffer has been working on a few things and hopefully it pays off.”
