Post-Match: Hill On Chesterfield Draw

24 August 2015

Manager Keith Hill spoke to Dale Player following Saturday’s entertaining goal-less draw with Chesterfield.

He gave us his take on the game…

“Our defence was on top and I’d say our strikers probably let us down, but that’s not being disrespectful to our strikers. We should have won the game and anyone who argues is just denying the facts.

“Chesterfield are an excellent side and had chances themselves, but I thought we defended superbly. I think we were a little bit negligent in front of goal but you could also argue that Tommy Lee was absolutely outstanding.

“Josh Lillis made an outstanding save in the dying embers of the first half but up until that point we controlled, bossed and created opportunities. We really should have put the game to bed in that first half.

“But I’m pleased with the discipline of the side. It’s a great point and a great clean sheet.”

Hill was also asked about recruitment after the match, but when prompted, he wouldn’t reveal any names.

“I’m always looking and I’m always looking to recruit. If I feel as though those players can improve us, then I’ll bring them in. But if we do it’ll all be within our financial resources, which we’re very good at keeping.

“But to be honest, if I was going to leave my wife, I wouldn’t tell you who I was leaving her for,” laughed Hill.
