'We're not safe yet' says boss

ROTHERHAM United have been warned to take nothing for granted in the last five games of the Championship season.

Having pulled out a healthy seven-point lead over the bottom three thanks to Monday's tension-lifting win over Brighton, the Millers look in a much stronger position and many believe just one more victory will see them safe.

But as he prepares his team for tomorrow's toughie at promotion-chasing Middlesbrough, manager Steve Evans doesn't want his players to rest on their laurels.

He wants them to tackle the fixture and Wednesday's trip to Fulham with the same intensity that put paid to Brighton and make sure that Millwall and Wigan below don't get the chance to make up ground.

Evans told the Advertiser: “We are not safe yet, we've achieved nothing and we're still in a fight.

“What we need to do is play with the same effort and energy levels as we did against Sheffield Wednesday and in the second half at Birmingham last Friday and for 95 minutes on Monday.

“We'll win games and we'll lose games but if we do that then I'll take whatever follows.

“We've got to make Middlesbrough work hard, that's the minimum.”
