Captain Craig Morgan has set Rotherham United the target of not losing at Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow.

The centre-half believes the Millers can bring their attacking prowess to bear, but says avoiding defeat against a side below them in the table is the top priority.

“First and foremost, if we can go there, put in a good away performance and not get beat I think that’s positive,” he said.

“We’ll look to progress the game from there. Firstly, we should be going there thinking if they don’t beat us then they don’t catch us in the league.

“That will be the way to look at it, but we’ll always also go with the attacking threat that we’ve got.

Rotherham drew 3-3 with Fulham on Tuesday night after conceding a 90th-minute goal and are now unbeaten in their last four Championship matches.

“You’ve got to take the positives. I think if you’d have said four points from the next two homes games (Leeds, 2-1 win, and Fulham) we’d have taken it,” Morgan added.

“ Obviously Fulham feels like a loss to because of the way it’s happened at the end of the game.

Three times the Millers led but were pegged back each time.

That’s disappointing for us because that’s unlike us,” Morgan said. “Maybe that’s an insight into the quality of the league we’re now in.”
