Hill not happy about rugby problem

Chris O'Grady grabbed the only goal of Saturday's League Two game at Moss Rose to send Dale five points clear at the summit, but afterwards Hill turned his thoughts back to home soil as ground-sharing neighbours Rochdale Hornets Rugby League team kickstart their league campaign on Sunday.

"We're absolutely dismayed they're playing rugby on the pitch," he said.

"Only one or two hundred people will come down (on Sunday), but it's producing a pitch that's conducive only for rugby and not for the type of football we want to play.

"Everybody in the town should be behind our promotion drive, but on Tuesday night we'll face a dreadful pitch on which we can't play the type of football we want to.

"The players are very disappointed about it and so am I."
