Hill handed a debut to on-loan striker Bobby Grant during Saturday`s 3-3 draw against Swindon at Spotland.
The 20-year-old, who can also play on the wing, last week signed from Scunthorpe until January after finding first-team chances hard to come by at Glanford Park.
He made an immediate impact by scoring against the Robins and looks certain to retain his place in the starting line-up.
Grant said: "I`ve played in 13 Championship games but I wanted to come here and start games and score goals as well.
"I am not viewing this as a step backwards - I want to score goals for Rochdale and who knows what will happen."
