BOSS Steve Evans has acknowledged “there is more work to be done” in the transfer market before Rotherham United can be considered serious promotion contenders.
It is no secret the Millers boss is eager to bring in further reinforcements as he looks to put the finishing touches to his squad ahead of the 2012/13 season. Despite swooping for Daniel Nardiello and Kayode Odejayi, Evans is determined to bring in more attacking players. He hopes to bring in a young striker on a season-long loan deal to increase competition for places on the frontline.
In total, Evans has brought in nine new faces and the Rotherham chief has indicated he wants another three recruits to enhance his options.
But Evans insists he is in no hurry to complete the rest of his transfer dealings.
He stressed: “Unless I get who I want at the right terms for Rotherham United then we will wait. Our recruitment this summer has been excellent but I know more than anyone there is a bit more work to be done if we are to have in place the squad that I believe can really challenge for promotion.
“We have a talented squad in place so now we need to get them fit, organised, disciplined and very focused on the job we are all here to do.”
Evans has confirmed transfer-listed trio Jamie Annerson, Ryan Cresswell and Danny Schofield have all got clubs interested in their services. Two Football League clubs and a Blue Square Premier team are in talks with defender Cresswell, says Evans.
Millers fans, meanwhile, are being urged to buy ‘Early Bird’ matchday tickets for the New York Stadium. Adult tickets will be priced at £15 if purchased in advance while under-8s will be free in the Ben Bennett Family stand.
