All eyes on safety

STEVE Evans says four more points should be enough to keep Rotherham United in the Championship.

The Millers go into tomorrow's game with Norwich knowing that victory, allied to defeats for Millwall and Wigan, will see them safe, even if the Football League dock them three points for allegedly fielding an ineligible player.

While news on that should be clearer this morning, Evans has mentally prepared himself for a points deduction.

His main concern is that Rotherham keep their destiny in their own hands and make the most of successive AESSEAL New York Stadium dates against the Canaries and then Reading on Tuesday before next Saturday's finale at Leeds.

He told the Advertiser: “I've prepared myself for the points coming off, because if not you end up with a bad shock. It's not something you can second guess.

“After Millwall lost to Blackburn the other night, it's still in our hands and we have to keep it that way.

“We all recognise the importance of keeping this team in the Championship and these are two of the biggest games this club has ever played. What we must do is keep our focus and whatever news comes, not let that affect us.

“Four points could be enough and six will send us on our holidays, but we'll have to earn them.”
