Rotherham United face Middlesbrough on Wednesday night and are desperate to pick up three points in a bid to save themselves from relegation.

Paul Warne has admitted his side are disappointed that they are facing relegation and has said they are running out of time.

“I think everyone has realised the efforts that we have put in this year and the difficulties that we have faced and none of us feel like we are a bottom three team but unfortunately that is currently what the league says, which is disappointing.

“We’ve got to live for the day, play as well as we can play and if it is meant to be, we pick up three we do and if we don’t we have to go to the next game.

“We are running out of games, I’m not trying to belittle the task ahead,” Warne said

Despite the situation, Warne’s players are in good spirits and are ready for the challenge.

“Generally speaking the lads are good. The sun is out and we’ve still got an opportunity to survive which is great. We’ve got less than three weeks left of the season to see how the table determines our efforts.

“Everyone is bang up for the battle and hopefully we can perform at a level again on Wednesday to get us three points.”

The Rotherham boss has also said his side has dropped points where they shouldn’t have.

“We’re probably – rightly or wrongly – a little bit more aggressive and we’re trying to take games to the opposition.

“Last time in the Championship, we drew too many games. I think we’ve won as many as the bottom six as everybody else but we have probably dropped a few points where we shouldn’t have,” he added.
