Rochdale's new loan keeper Josh Lillis has admitted their high league placing attracted him to the League Two club.The 22-year-old Scunthorpe stopper kept a clean sheet against Bournemouth on Saturday as Dale moved within two points of the league leaders. [LNB]He told BBC Radio Manchester: "When I was asked to come to Rochdale I thought 'Top of the league, that's where you want to be in any league.' [LNB]"They're a good team, one of the top teams in the division." [LNB]He added: "Obviously I played at Notts County last year and played against Rochdale and we got beaten 3-0. [LNB]"So I was impressed with them then and I can remember playing against them in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and I was impressed with them then as well. [LNB]"I've also been on loan at Grimsby who are all right with good players but they've got a few injuries at the moment so it was good to get the offer from Rochdale."
