FA Cup - Hill relishes Leeds test

Rochdale manager Keith Hill is looking forward to welcoming Championship outfit Leeds to Spotland in the third round of the FA Cup.

After travelling to Torquay and Rotherham in the opening two rounds of the competition, Hill is delighted to be returning to home soil for the clash with Brian McDermott's side.

He told the club's official website: "I'm pleased that we're at home - we have had great support in our last two away games in the FA Cup so it's great to bring the FA Cup back to Spotland and hopefully we can sprinkle a little bit of magic on the game.

"It's a difficult fixture, but a really good fixture for us. It's one that we can get excited about but we've got five league games between now and then. We need to make sure that we focus in on them so that we can really enjoy the task of trying to win a game against Leeds.

"They've got a great manager, they're a good footballing side and they're at the right end of the league. It's going to be a difficult fixture but who knows what's going to happen in a one off fixture like that? It's an exciting time for the players."
