ROTHERHAM United chairman Tony Stewart is pleading with the fans to keep faith with the players as the club bids to get back to winning ways in League Two.

The Millers have lost five in a row and Stewart is urging supporters to cheer Andy Scott’s side on to victory at home to Shrewsbury.

“It does help when we get a good crowd down at the Don Valley Stadium,” he told The Star. “We have got to give the players encouragement.

“It helps when everyone is supporting each other. We played fantastically against Gillingham so we have to help the players get back to that level of performance.”

Meanwhile, the Millers have secured a site for their new training ground.

Stewart unveiled plans for a new Rotherham United Academy earlier in the year and a deal to buy a plot of land owned by steel giants Outokumpu has now been agreed.

The 14-acre site is in Brinsworth and the deal should be finalised in weeks,

Stewart said: “The new sports ground that we are moving to next season will give us more flexibility and meet all the required needs of the club.”
