Home test for Evans' men

ROTHERHAM United aim to complete back-to-back victories for the first time this season when they take on Morecambe at the New York Stadium tonight (7.45pm).

Jim Bentley's side arrive in a good run of form, having won three of their previous four games and sit a point behind the Millers on the fringes of the play-off places in League Two.

But Rotherham, who were 3-0 winners at lowly Aldershot on Saturday, also have fresh impetus and manager Steve Evans wants them to carry on the good work against opponents he rates highly.

He said: "On Saturday Morecambe beat a good Southend United team and an early report tells me it was no more than they deserved, so that alone indicates it will be a tough match.

"Any team that can go to Rochdale and win comfortably, which they also done, has to be a good side, and I think they will challenge for the sixth of seventh play-off place.

"They will come here in a confident mood but we also showed plenty of ability, effort and desire on Saturday and we want to keep it going."

Andy Warrington is set to continue in goal in place of Scott Shearer, who is expected to be out for five or six weeks after twisting a knee in training last week. He has undergone a minor operation.

Victory could take the Millers into the top seven.
