BOSS Steve Evans is calling on Rotherham United’s supporters to come out in their droves for a “monster” cup tie at the New York Stadium.

The Millers, in fourth position in League Two, host Notts County on Saturday and Evans is asking the fans to turn up in their numbers to cheer the team into the third round of the FA Cup for the first time since 2002.

Fresh from victories on the road at Exeter City and Accrington Stanley, Evans is targeting a third win in the space of a week.

“We are preparing for a monster cup tie with Notts County,” he said. “We need you (the fans) to get behind us. We have won away twice and worked really hard and the minimum I can promise you on Saturday is we will give it everything we have got.”

Rotherham have already eliminated Stevenage from the tournament.

He said: “We have a big task to beat County but we’ve knocked out one League One side, and with your support I know we can do it again.”

World Cup final referee Howard Webb, who hails from Rotherham, is the star attraction of an evening dinner which is to be staged at the New York Stadium on Thursday December 6.

The event gets underway at 7pm and also includes a two-course Christmas meal, raffle, memorabilia auction and photo opportunities.

Three days later at the ground, former Rotherham boss Tommy Docherty is the special guest of a ‘Sportsman Lunch’, featuring an auction and raffle.
