ROTHERHAM United manager Steve Evans says his team are still striving for consistency.

“I said this season would be a roller-coaster, although I wasn’t expecting something like last Saturday,” he said referring to the 5-0 defeat at Dagenham.

“We have had an indifferent start but had done well just prior to that game, although I think we have this in our locker - we could win by five or lose by four.

“We are looking now for a reaction and we have seen a positive one in training this week.

“It hurts when you have lots of players out and big players among them,” added Evans referring to the absence of eight players.

He refused to rule out central defender Craig Morgan who twisted his ankle last Saturday but will definitely be without Kari Arnason again.

“He’s probably going to be another couple of weeks,” said Evans.

The Millers entertain a Cheltenham side who are third in the table, seven points ahead of Rotherham.

“They are a good side, have invested in some real talent and this will be as tough a game as we have had at the New York Stadium,” added Evans.
