Captain Craig Morgan says he won’t be too bothered whether Rotherham United are home or away in the first leg of the League One Play-offs.

“People have asked me if it’s important to finish third or fourth and so guarantee the second leg is at home,” said Morgan

“Yeh, you can say that but reverse it and look at our away form - it has been fantastic.

“Look, you have to play home and away and whichever way round it is then so be it, I won’t be concerned which way it comes out.

“Even if we did happen to be at home first and, say, it ended level, we know what our away form is like and what we are capable of so it’s not the end of the world.”

Rotherham’s final two games are at home to MK Dons, no longer in the Play-off reckoning, and at Swindon who still are in contention but may not be so by the time of the final game.

Added Morgan: “Our focus is on winning the final two games and going into the Play-offs with positive results behind us.

“We certainly won’t go into the Play-offs fearing anybody. We’ve given all of them good games both home and away and got positive results against them.”

He said the win over Port Vale enabled them to quickly put the incredible 6-4 defeat at Wolves behind them very quickly.

“It must have been a great game for the neutral but it wasn’t pleasant to play in at times,” he chuckled. “But we weren’t prepared to do what Bradford did at our place and camp in - we wanted to have a go at them and we’re proud of ourselves for doing that.”

Supporters are asked to keep their ticket stubs from the MK Dons game as this will give them priority (after season ticket holders and Mayday members) for a Play-off semi-final ticket before they go on general sale. The club fully expects a capacity crowd for the game.

The first legs will be on Saturday, May 10 with the second legs on Tuesday, May 13 and Thursday, May 15.
