Rotherham United have put their fans on red alert and told them they have a massive part to play in helping their side in the League One Play-off semi-final with Preston tonight.

“We know we need every inch of help in this second leg tonight,” said Millers manager Steve Evans.

“Our fans have been magnificent in the past two seasons and when they turn up the volume, this New York Stadium is some place.”

Chairman Tony Stewart has called on Rotherham fans to turn the New York Stadium into a sea of red and asked them to wear something red.

“We all know what Tony Stewart has done for this football club, building a special stadium in the town centre, we’re debt-free, and the entire club and the town has been galvanised.

“He deserves nights like this and he deserves success and if he asks us all to wear red and to give it maximum volume, then we should all follow that.”

Evans went on: “This stadium has superb acoustics and it is going to be real noisy tonight and with the game level and poised as it is, the fans really can help their favourites.

“We all remember what the atmosphere was like for the Aldershot game on the last day when we went up. It’ll be special again.

“The Preston fans were great and we need our decibel levels at their highest.

“The chairman wants to be in The Championship and he’s determined. It will be a question of when we get there not if because he’s so ambitious.

“Nobody expected us to be in the Play-offs, we’re the surprise package on League One. Well, can we keep on surprising people? Let’s hope we can and get to Wembley.”
