Hill: We've Beaten A Tremendous Team

22 October 2014

Manager Keith Hill spoke to Dale Player following Tuesday night’s excellent 3-2 win over Swindon Town at the County Ground…


“We’ve matched them today and we’ve really taken them on – going three against three we tried to lead against the back.

"That’s a tremendous team we’ve beaten tonight and all credit to Mark [Cooper, the Swindon Town Manager] and the players themselves for playing with the freedom. We knew that we had to roll our sleeves up tonight and be honest.

“We had a little bit of luck in the last 20 minutes of the second half, but the first half we should have been two goals to the advantage. We counter attack superbly and we should have scored more goals. Their goal was a sloppy one to concede and probably supported them in the pursuit of the three points, but we took the game to the opposition in the second half. They’re an excellent side and we know they score a lot of last 20 minute goals because they’re a ball playing side. We withstood the pressure and had a bit of luck at times.

“I would have been reasonably happy with a draw but to get the three points is a magnificent achievement for the points that we’ve dropped over the last couple of weeks.

“There’s a massive spirit in that team and a tremendous appetite to be successful. We’re not one of the Kings of Savile Row of League One but we will over achieve, there’s no question about that.”
