Boss Steve Evans has backed his new-look Rotherham team to end their goal drought.

The Millers have scored only once in the last seven matches, but the last three games have brought a surge of optimism for fans.

Evans has brought in four new players and adopted a pass-and-move style which has transformed Rotherham’s attacking threat

“We’ll get goals,” he said after watching his men draw 0-0 against Nottingham Forest as they spurned a succession of chances.

“It’s come off the woodwork today, the goalkeeper’s had an absolute wonder save for Forest, they’ve had a couple of great blocks defensively as well.”

The Millers are one place and three points above the Championship drop zone, but Evans prefers to look up rather than down.

“The last time I looked down at a league table I must have been six,” he said.

“I’ve supported Glasgow Celtic all my life so you only ever looked in one place, and when you’ve had eight promotions in 10 or 11 years then you tend to be looking up.

“We’re always looking up. We’re three or four points away from being up near midtable.”

Meanwhile, the Boxing Day match at home to Huddersfield is now a sell-out.

The Millers youngsters are in FA Youth Cup third-round action against Wolves tonight at New York Stadium, kick-off 7pm.
