Rochdale boss Hill tipping Man Utd keeper Joel Castro Pereira for big things

Rochdale boss Keith Hill is impressed by on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Castro Pereira.

The 19-year-old made his Rochdale debut against Morecambe in the Johnstone's Paints Trophy on Tuesday, losing 1-0.

But Hill said: "One good thing to come out of the night was Joel's performance and I think he is going to be a top, top goalkeeper.

“He has pedigree and what he has been producing in training was better than what we saw against Morecambe.

“His pass range is remarkable, he has composure and a thirst to win, he reads an opponent very well.

“He is an exceptional talent and I was always going to play him against Morecambe. I've got no reservations, if called upon, to play him in a league fixture, but obviously Josh Lillis is our number one goalkeeper right now."
