Manager Steve Evans has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for March.
Evans has led the Millers to five wins and two draws during the month of March, continuing the Millers unbeaten run which now stretches to 15 games.
Evans, who has been nominated for the monthly award twice already this season after being pipped in November and February, is up against tough opposition in the shape of Kenny Jackett, Steve Cotterill and Mark Warburton.
See below for a full list of nominations:
Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
Led his side out of the bottom four in convincing fashion behind an avalanche of goals — 15 in seven matches — culminating in the 5-0 thumping of Port Vale. He has bred confidence among his players and restored the fans’ faith.
Steve Evans (Rotherham United)
Maintained his team’s unbeaten record since the opening day of 2014 in style. His attacking principles were on show in the 3-0 win over promotion rivals Brentford, a haul of 17 points from seven games and a 15-2 goal count.
Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
A busy, free-scoring month in which Jackett rotated his side expertly to secure 19 points from eight games. They scored 18 goals in the process. The belief he has instilled moved Wolves six points clear at the top of League 1.
Mark Warburton (Brentford)
His shrewd tactics in the pivotal 1-0 win away to London rivals Leyton Orient tipped the balance towards his side in the hunt for automatic promotion. Five clean sheets contributed to a haul of 14 points from seven games.
