Rochdale boss Keith Hill says his side must continue making progress if they are to establish themselves in League One.
Last season Hill led the Spotland outfit to their first promotion since 1969 after years in the bottom tier of English football.
Having finally climbed out of the basement division, Hill is determined to keep moving forward.
He said: "In terms of establishing ourselves in League One, that only comes with longevity.
"That doesn't mean one, two or three seasons, it means five or six seasons.
"I believe success this year will be to keep our place in League One, but then we have to build on that."
