Rochdale boss Keith Hill insists no more players must be sold this season if his side are to finally end 40 years of promotion heartache. Dale have not won a promotion since 1969 and have failed in the League Two play-offs in the past two seasons.
Hill said: "If we want to get promoted we have got to keep this squad together. Last season and the season before, we sold players.
"When January comes this time, let's retain our best players. If we do that we've a really good chance of making a fist of it.
"In the previous two seasons the teams who have been promoted have not sold anybody, but we've had to. I understand we have to, but let's do it at the right time."
