Keep it up, says Evans

MANAGER Steve Evans has urged Rotherham United to keep the pressure on the leading teams after seeing his side stretch their unbeaten run to 11 matches last night.

Goals in each half from Mark Bradley and Lee Frecklington capped a 2-0 win at Oldham and cemented fifth spot in League One.

The Millers remain nine points behind second-placed Leyton Orient, who along with leaders Wolves and third-placed Brentford, all won last night.

The primary aim remains the play-offs but Evans wants his players to keep pressing over the remaining 11 matches.

He said: "We know there's going to be a collapse at the top and I don't think many teams can beat Wolves, Brentford and Leyton Orient, but they can't all win when they play each other and they can't all win when they play us. That's what gives us hope.

"But if we do manage to get in the play-offs, then over two games I fancy us."

The gap down to seventh-placed MK Dons stands at 13 points and Walsall, Saturday's visitors to the New York Stadium, are four points further back.

"We know it's going to tough," added Evans. "The fans have been terrific and we need a big support again on Saturday."

 

"If we win it might just tell one or two managers who've doubted us that we could get in those play-offs."
