Millers chief keeps minds on the job

MANAGER Paul Warne is keen that his Rotherham United players don't get too far ahead of themselves in the crucial remaining weeks of the season.

The postponement of last weekend's fixture at Gillingham was frustrating for League One's form team, denying them the chance to chase down an eighth straight victory.

The Millers will now get an opportunity at home to Rochdale on Saturday, with a rearranged trip to another struggling side, MK Dons, to follow next Tuesday.

For Warne, the old mantra of taking one game at a time applies more than ever.

"We've got 12 games to go and I haven't set the players any points targets," he said.

"We did have a chat pre-season about what we wanted to achieve and how many points we wanted to get per game and we do stick to that, although obviously we've smashed it out of the park in recent games.

"But since Christmas we have just gone out to try and win every match. I know that's cheesy but that's the truth. If you start looking too far ahead then you can get carried away with yourself. Our focus now is to beat Rochdale and fortunately at the moment we're in good form and there is no reason to change the approach."

Richie Towell and the Millers celebrate victory against Doncaster Rovers last time out.

Fans still have a chance to take in a potentially thrilling climax to the season at the AESSEAL New York Stadium at reduced rates.
