No repeats, says Steve

STEVE Evans says Rotherham United will head to Bradford City next Tuesday with pride and dignity — and that there will be no repeat of the ugly scenes of last year which landed him in hot water with the Football Association.

Evans, then boss at Crawley Town, was in the thick of a dressing room fracas last March following the ill-tempered game when five players were given post-match red cards.

Three City players were sent-off after the brawl along with two from Crawley, including Claude Davis who is also expected to play a part in Tuesday’s biggie.

The Millers boss was subsequently given a six-match stadium ban and fined £3,000 by the Football Association after being found guilty of "using abusive and insulting words and behaviour" towards a female member of Bradford’s staff.

But Evans says there will be no repeat and no grudges — although he expects the be on the receiving end of a barrage of abuse from the Bantams’ fans.

“That is now in the past and we will go to Bradford as a club. Steve Evans and Rotherham United are going there to win a football match, simple as that,” he said.
