Hill: The Players Will Get Some Rest

30 November 2014

Manager Keith Hill has revealed that the players will get some much needed rest this week.

With Dale not in action again until Sunday, Hill confirmed in the weekend's post-match interview that the players will get the chance to re-energise.

He said: “The players are going to get some rest – they need it. They look a little bit jaded and there has been an illness. Josh Lillis reported ill today [Saturday], so it’s spreading through the camp a little bit and we need to re-charge our batteries.

“The players will get a certain amount of time off this week because we don’t play until the Sunday. I want the players to be able to re-energise themselves and I might give one or two of the players a full week off and see them a week on Monday. I feel as though one or two of the younger players might need time to relax, refresh and not put themselves under too much pressure. Certain players have come such a long way in such a short space of time and I feel as though I have to make those changes [on Sunday] to benefit us in the long term.”
