WITH the prospect of no managerial appointment until at least next week, more names are set to be thrown into the mix for the Rotherham United vacancy.

Chairman Tony Stewart said early in the selection process that he would not rule out managers already in a job.

One name which could emerge as a surprise contender is Crawley boss Steve Evans who led them into League Two a year ago. They are currently lying third despite selling star strikers Tyrone Barnett and Matt Tubbs in January but the Rotherham job is seen as an attractive one even for managers at clubs doing well, Evans will be no exception and may well come under consideration.

There has been previous speculation that the job, and thus a return to South Yorkshire, would appeal to former Owls boss Paul Sturrock despite his promotion push at Southend. His assistant Graham Coughlan, ex-Millers and Owls defender, is keen to get into management and, as a pair, they will have noted the vacancy with interest.
