CRAWLEY manager Steve Evans has admitted that Rotherham United have asked for permission to interview him over the Millers’ vacant managerial position.

Evans said: “Crawley Town have made me aware that Rotherham have made an approach. I want to get Easter out of the way first and my main focus at the moment is our match at Barnet on Monday.”

A decision on Millers hot-seat vacancy is not expected until the week after next.

Chairman Tony Stewart says there are still more candidates to interview and it’s believed two former Premier League managers are on the ever-expanding short-list.

Stewart was not at Wimbledon yesterday where the Millers secured a third win in four games under caretaker Darren Patterson.

The winner came seven minutes from time from youngster Sam Hoskins, on loan from Southampton. It is his first goal in league football. He had only been on the field for three minutes. It was a goalscorer’s goal, one he’ll always remember” said Patterson. “I thought our football was absolutely outstanding in the first half and, we could have four or five, easily.”
