Manager Keith Hill has said he was relatively upbeat despite Tuesday evening’s loss to Sheffield United.

Going down two one at Spotland, Rochdale did gift United the second half goal through a goalkeeping error and a late consolation goal from O’Connell wasn’t enough to get us back in the match, but speaking to the Official Site Hill felt it was just one of those games with a ‘mistake’ that happens in football but overall the performance against one of the top League One sides in the division did please him.

‘Mistakes happen, but it’s just a shame that it happens against one of the better sides in the league. It was a great opportunity for us and I thought it was evenly matched. They’re an excellent side and I thought at times, especially in the second half, we showed great coverage, a great response, but unfortunately mistakes are part of the game and you’ve got to accept that.’

Hill goes on to say that ‘there’s no point’ in feeling sorry yourselves after a game like that, you just have to take the positives and move on.

‘It was an added bonus having this game – there was nothing to be lost but we could have gained so much. I was reasonably happy with the performance, the spirit has always been there and the energy was there. It’s just unfortunate that we couldn’t salvage something from the game points wise.’
