Continuity is key for Black

CARETAKER manager Eric Black has admitted it would be “foolish” of him to ditch the Rotherham United game-plan that has seen them win their last two games as the team prepare for tonight’s fixture against Burnley.

Black – who stepped in to the hotseat following Steve Evans’ departure on Monday – says that wins against Cardiff and Birmingham provide a good blueprint and he isn’t looking to make dramatic changes.

Those victories have seen Rotherham move out of the relegation zone and Black is keen to install a sense of continuity. Speaking before the New York Stadium clash, which is live on Sky TV, he said: “It would be foolish of me to rip up what has happened in the last two games and start again, I don’t intend to do that.

“I’ve been working on things for several weeks now so we’re going to carry on.”

The Millers have injury doubts over a couple of players including skipper Lee Frecklington, who Black intends to keep in the role of club captain.

he said: “We’ve had a hiccup this week with Frecklington. He came in and trained but after the warm-up he felt his injury so he’s pulled out again."

Kick off is 7.45pm.
