SHEFFIELD-born Andy Warrington expects the League Two promotion race to “go down to the wire”.

Although the Rotherham United goalkeeper was “bitterly disappointed” to draw with York City in midweek, he feels there will be plenty more twists and turns over the next two months.

“Promotion will go down to the wire,” said Warrington. “There are a lot of a teams in and around there who are vying for the same thing. We have to keep chipping away at Gillingham and Port Vale.”

Despite Daniel Nardiello’s last gasp equaliser at the New York Stadium, the Millers are now three points off the automatic promotion placings but have two games in hand over third-placed Burton Albion. Both Gillingham and Port Vale, the top two sides in the division, lost at home on Tuesday.

Warrington said: “We were bitterly disappointed not to beat York. We showed determination to get back into the game but we feel that’s two points dropped.

“We have disappointed at home. It is a great place to play. I think away teams come and see the surroundings and it lifts them.

“You look at the last home game with Chesterfield and it was probably one of the best atmospheres I’ve ever played in. The noise down by pitchside was unbelievable. I was screaming at my defenders and I could not be heard.”
