Same again for Dale

Hill made two changes to his starting line-up for Saturday's 1-1 draw at Swindon with Brian Barry-Murphy and Will Atkinson recalled in place of Josh Thompson and Nicky Adams.

New signing Robbie Williams, who joined Dale from Stockport last week on a short-term contract until the end of the season, was an unused substitute at the County Ground.

Hill's men were denied victory against the Robins when Elliot Benyon found the net two minutes into injury time on his debut to salvage a point for Danny Wilson's struggling side.

Yet Hill said: "I was really pleased with the performance, the energy and the tactics."
