Manager Keith Hill's post-match reaction...
Rochdale moved within three points of the play-offs on Easter Monday with a 2-0 win over Coventry City at the Crown Oil Arena.
Manager Keith Hill praised his players for their “professional performance” as all eyes now turn to Saturday’s derby match against Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park.
“It was a difficult fixture because there was a lot of expectation on us after they [Coventry City] got relegated on Friday,” he told Dale PlayerHD.
“That can sometimes make a positive or a negative impact, so we prepared the players well and I thought the players were magnificent.
“It was a very professional performance and it was job done.”
With two games left to play this season, Hill says it’s important that we take care of our own business in order to try and secure a top six finish.
“There’s still a possibility [of a play-off place], so we’ve got to make sure we prepare ourselves to do whatever we can to win the game against Oldham and then we’ll have a look again.
“We can’t affect the teams above us unless we take care of business. If we take care of business, then who knows.
“The players have taken care of business in the last two games and that’s what’s given us an outside chance. The players have been very professional and that’s where you just never what’s going to happen in football. We’ve got to make sure we don’t leave anything in the changing rooms or any stone unturned in our preparation for Oldham.
“There’s still fire in their belly and a massive appetite for success. The players know that every game we play represents an opportunity to maybe get into the play-offs if we do the business.”
