Gaffer prepared for tough task

21 March 2014

Difficult London Road trip for Millers...

Steve Evans approaches his 100th game as Millers boss coming face-to-face with a number of conflicts off the field. 

An adopted native of the Cambridgeshire city, Evans family still live close to the area and will have a number of familiar faces representing the home side and in the stands.

“My children were born and brought up in Peterborough and are part of the area now so there will be banter down there,” Evans told Millers Player. “I know Barry (Fry) well, Darragh (Macanthony) and Darren Ferguson well and he’ll know what we’re all about, have his team prepared and won’t be wanting Steve Evans to win his 100th game as Millers boss there.”

The Posh go into the game in sixth position chasing one of the elusive play off spots which they currently occupy, along with the Millers, Leyton Orient and Preston, and Evans knows that his side will face a tough task.

“Peterborough were my club to be champions. They kept all who Darren wanted to keep and they came and got a win at New York. They’re a good club with a good Chairman and they’ll do well.

“We’re looking forward to the day but more importantly we have to focus on what happens on the pitch between 3pm and 5pm because these play offs are proving so so tough this year. If we had this same points total last season we would probably be top of the league but it shows the bar that has been set by Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brentford and it shows how good those teams are.”
