Evans calls on 'twelfth man'

Steve Evans talks to

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans has urged the Millers fans to continue their magnificent support ahead of Saturday’s showdown with Peterborough United.

The Millers head into the game still unbeaten in League One, whilst Posh have lost just once and sit second behind League One pace setters Leyton Orient.

Ahead of the weekend the Millers manager has called on the fans to once again be the twelfth man, in anticipation of a large and vocal following making the journey to New York from Peterborough.

“There is no doubt that this is going to be a big test against a team I fully expect to be challenging for the League One championship come the end of the season,” Evans told

“We will need to win the battle off the pitch so I am calling on our supporters to once again come out in big numbers and continue the magnificent support which we receive both home and away.  Having lived in Peterborough for much of my life I know Posh will be backed by a loud and passionate support, so I am expecting an electric atmosphere at New York.

“I said back in the summer that Peterborough were the ‘champions elect’, and I will be watching them closely once again tonight when they take on Sunderland. They have some quality players for the level. Obviously I know all about Tyrone Barnett and Danny Kearns having worked closely with them, but also they have the likes of Assombalonga and the ‘keeper Bobby Olejnik, players more than capable of making the next step.”

Tickets for the big game are available now at the New York Stadium ticket office, call 08444 140754.
