Boss Hill eyes Dale progress

Rochdale manager Keith Hill is confident that his side can recover from a 2-1 defeat in the first leg of their play-off semi-final at Darlington.
A last-gasp Ian Miller header proved decisive at the Darlington Arena, with Dale goalkeeper Tommy Lee at fault for failing to deal with a high ball into the area.
However, Hill said after the game: "I'm not despondent in any way, shape or form. It's still a tight game.
"It was a definite mistake by Tommy, but he's done really well for us since he's been on loan from Macclesfield.
"There's not an awful lot in it, one goal isn't much of a margin. To go to our place 2-1 down, I'm still encouraged.
"We're more than capable of scoring goals at our place."
