Rochdale boss Keith Hill is in buoyant mood ahead of the opening game of the season at home to Hartlepool on Saturday. Hill guided the Spotland outfit to their first promotion since 1969 last term and they are now gearing up for life in npower League One. "I'm really excited about the prospect of this week," said Hill. "The Hartlepool game is just around the corner, the lads are in good shape, good spirits, they have got a good fitness base and it's now about stepping over that white line and holding their nerve."
