Eyebrows were raised in some quarters when Hill opted to drop down to League Two with his former club less than a month after being sacked as manager of Championship strugglers Barnsley.

"It's been brilliant to be back," Hill told BBC Radio Manchester. "I'm happy and there's a lot to be said for being happy.

"I think my family have noticed the change in me over the last couple of weeks - I feel as though I've come out of a footballing coma."

Hill is also encouraged by Dale's displays in back-to-back draws with Cheltenham and Chesterfield that leave them eight points shy of the play-off places in 15th.

"There's a decent nucleus of players there to work with and I'm encouraged by the two performances that we've had," he added.

"The players have been magnificent to work with but we've got to continue in the same vein. We've got to turn these draws into three-point results.

"With 16 games to play, there's still a lot to play for. It's quite a condensed league and I don't think there's too much difference in quality between position A and position Z."
