ROTHERHAM United and manager Steve Evans have been holding discussions on the best way to handle the next month when he will be banned from the grounds where the team is playing for a total of six matches.

Home games are filmed as a matter of course and the manager receives a DVD of the game but the club want to ensure the best possible help for Evans.

They could even look into the possibility of their own camerawork at away games.

After the FA announcement of the ban, the club said they would work closely with Evans “to ensure the penalty imposed does not affect our objectives for this season”.

The club are aware of the potential effect on performances and results of a six-match absence for their manager, particularly one whose drive and stimulation is considered an important matchday ingredient.

The ban starts with Saturday’s home game against Torquay United. It also takes in Rochdale (h), Barnet (a), Oxford Utd (h), Accrington Stanley (a) and York City (a).

Assistant Paul Raynor will take charge on those days.
