ALEX Revell says the ability of the players to support each other will be a factor in Rotherham United maintaining their League One play-off push.

The big striker, enjoying probably his best spell at the club, says he believes they will get better in this second half of the season.

“The expectation and the pressure here is quite big and although our fans have been fantastic and the support is great because the sound cascades down, when you make a mistake then you can hear people if they have a grumble,” he said.

“If I make one, I hope someone will get me out of it and we have lads here who are so honest that they will strive to get you out of it.

“That’s a belief we have in each other and it’s why we are doing so well. Everyone is pulling the right way and I can see us getting better.

“We have players here who can play in The Championship and that’s what we are bidding for, you have to strive for success.

“The gaffer has put together a group of lads who all want that success.

“There’s not one person in the squad who’s happy to be carried along by the other lads. They are all working hard and we have to be at a certain tempo, at a certain standard otherwise it drops and you know about it.

The Millers are at home to Stevenage on Saturday.

“They’re exciting times but we have to keep it going and, hopefully, go under the radar while doing so,” added Revell.

“Perhaps people thought we might have faded away by but we have a manager who won’t let you fade away. He’s not happy just to let us settle where we are now, he wants us to aim to be higher.”

Last Saturday’s postponed game at Colchester has been rearranged for Tuesday, March 4.

It means Rotherham will have a spell of four away games in five matches, the others three being Carlisle, Preston and Sheffield United.
