Millers eyeing away milestone

Have your say

ROTHERHAM United head to struggling Bristol Rovers this afternoon seeking a fifth successive away win for the first time since early 2009.

Three of the clubs the Millers beat in that run, Lincoln, Chester and Luton are no longer in the Football League.

Fourth-placed Rotherham are expected to claim maximum points at the Memorial Stadium today.

Rovers are second from bottom in League Two, having won just three times in 11 matches on home soil in the 2012/13 campaign, and parted company with boss Mark McGhee last week.

But Rotherham manager Steve Evans is refusing to get carried away by his side’s impressive form on the road and has admitted he will make “one or two” changes in personnel against Rovers.

He insisted: “We will make them for the right reasons, not because the players are tired.”

Meanwhile, Rotherham have less than 500 tickets left for the home clash with high-flying Port Vale on Boxing Day.
