Hill: Something To Look Forward To

11 November 2013

Manager Keith Hill has given his reaction to the FA Cup with Budweiser second round draw.

Rochdale will face League One side Rotherham United at the New York Stadium in December, but Hill isn't looking that far ahead just yet.

He told Dale Player: “I haven’t given it too much thought as we’ve got a lot of games to play between now and then, but I will do as we start approaching that fixture.

“As I said on Saturday, I’m happy to be in the next round. It’s a winnable game, it’s a winnable game for us and for Rotherham and the best team will win on the day. It’s a great opportunity for us and it’s something for us to look forward to but we’ve got a lot of traffic between now and the Rotherham game.”

Dale have been involved in five cup draws this season, will all five throwing up games on the road. Hill he says it doesn’t bother him as Manager whether the game is at Spotland or away from home, but acknowledges it is a strain on the supporter.

“I don’t really give too much consideration to whether it’s home or away. Obviously there’s the travelling impact, but the biggest impact is on the supporters’ pocket. For me as a manager and a player it’s just part of our routine that we’ve got to adapt to. I’m in agreement with Arsene Wenger that psychologically there shouldn't be a difference between playing home or away – it’s just a football match.”
