Manager Keith Hill has described his Rochdale side as "magnificent" after their comeback win at Swindon Town.

After trailing in the first-half, goals from Matty Lund, Peter Vincenti and an injury-time winner from Bastien Hery secured a 3-2 win for Dale.

"I'm so glad we won," Hill told BBC Radio Manchester.

"I would have learnt a lot from the game regardless of the result, but it's great to get the three points, absolutely magnificent."

Hill's side have now won four of their last six games away from Spotland, and moved to within three points of the League One play-off places.

In the 2010-11 season, Keith Hill led Rochdale to ninth in League One with 68 points, equalling their highest Football League finish.

Rochdale are back in League One after two seasons in the fourth tier, and the success at the County Ground was the latest in a series of impressive away results, which include a 5-2 win at Crewe and 4-0 victory at Crawley.

"It was exciting and I enjoyed the whole game," added Hill. "I enjoyed watching the opposition as well.

"It was a great contest and I must admit going into the last 15 minutes, when it's two each, I don't know what to do.

"I'm half thinking, 'what the hell do we do here?' Because they're an unbelievable side.

"It was a really good game to be involved in and I really, really enjoyed it."
