Chairman Tony Stewart wants a sea of red...
Rotherham United host Preston North End on Thursday knowing that a win would send them to Wembley, and Chairman Tony Stewart is looking for a sea of red as he encourages the supporters to ‘Wear Red for Rotherham’.
The Millers earned a draw at Deepdale on Saturday and it’s all square heading into the crucial second leg in three days, and Stewart wants to see as many of the Millers faithful sporting their colours as possible to create a sea of red.
“It would be fantastic to see everyone in the home end showing their colours for the team, that would be some sight.” said Chairman Tony Stewart.
"It’s important that when the team look up, they know that everyone is behind them and sporting their colours with pride. The support this year has been incredible and now we just need you for one more night at New York to hopefully send us to Wembley.
“We’re live on Sky once again and it would be tremendous for the people around the world watching to see a ground filled to the rafters with red shirts.”
As of this morning, less than 500 tickets were remaining for the game at New York Stadium as supporters have been keen to ensure they have the best seat in the house for this monumental tie.
So whether it’s this year’s commemorative shirt by PUMA, your lucky replica from the 1996 Auto Windscreen final or even one from your youth, squeeze yourself into it to make sure that you ‘Wear Red for Rotherham’ this Thursday.
There are still selected sizes of the current home shirt on sale in the Red & White Shop, with prices slashed to just £20.
