Rochdale boss Keith Hill says Sheffield United are the best team in League One.
The Dale boss made the admission after this afternoon's 3-3 draw at Spotland, which saw United twice lose the lead but still extend their lead at the top of the table.
"Our performance was very good, against the best team in League One," Hill said.
"At 2-0 down we could have gone either way, but our performance before we went 2-0 down was good and encouraging. We caused them problems, and to get back to 2-2 was outstanding.
"We made them change their tactics two or three times, which shows the respect that Chris Wilder and Sheffield United have for us.
"We got something out of the game, both managers were probably disappointed with the scoreline but the courage of both sides has to be applauded."
