READ | Everyone wants to finish on a high – Ryan

30 April 2019

Winger Ryan Williams says the squad are determined to finish the campaign on a high ahead of the season finale against Middlesbrough this Sunday.

The Millers were confined to relegation after a narrow defeat at West Brom last weekend, despite another impressive showing against one of the division’s heavyweight.

Williams says that the dressing room is still focused on finishing the season in style, and with no let up on the training field, the Aussie revealed the Millers are determined to sign off with something to shout about.

He told “I think everyone will be keen to finish on a high and prove a point for next season. It is important to finish well, we want to show the fans just how much a result means to everyone. We might have been relegated, but we are a proud group and every match matters. It would be a nice way to end if we could give the fans something to cheer about.

“We can go out there, give it a real good go, express ourselves and show what we can do. It is the last game of the season, so we want to enjoy it and try and put on a show.”

With Sunday’s opponents Middlesbrough still currently in the race for a play-off place, there is still plenty riding on the encounter.

The two sides played out a goalless draw at the Riverside earlier in the campaign, and despite the Teesiders still in the hunt for the play-offs, Williams states there is enough belief inside the AESSEAL New York Stadium that they can upset the odds one more time at the weekend.

He added: “I don't think we could have given any more this season if I am honest. All the boys, staff and everyone associated with the club have worked really hard this season. We have given our best, and I think on some occasions we just haven't had that little bit of luck.

“We gave ourselves a lot to do over the last five games. Everyone has given their all but it just wasn't to be in the end. The pressure is off now, we can really try and put on a big display for the fans. The feeling is still one of positivity, we know as a team we'll be going into next season from a strong place.”
