Hill: Pre Gillingham (H)

22 September 2017

Rochdale are back in League One action on Saturday, with the visit of Gillingham to the Crown Oil Arena.

Keith Hill's side recorded a resounding 4-0 win over local rivals Bury in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night.

Gillingham recorded their first victory of the league season last time out with a 1-0 win against Charlton Athletic.

That lifted Adrian Pennock's side out of the relegation zone.



Keith Hill has been on pre-match press duties ahead of the game. He told iFollow: "I believe that we’re a good side when we do it correctly."
