Rotherham United face Brentford on Tuesday evening. This is one of the two games in hand that Rotherham have over Derby County in the Championship.
The Millers are just four points behind Derby and can cut that gap to one with what would be a remarkable victory tomorrow evening.
Paul Warne, the Rotherham boss, has admitted his side are running out of matches to turn it around. The fact that Derby have lost their last five matches has given Warne’s side a chance, he says.
“Fortunately for us, other teams around us have kept us in it. If you’d have told we’d lose three or four on the spin two weeks ago, I’d have said we had no chance [of staying up] but we still have.
“The door is still a little bit ajar for us and if we can get our bodies through then great.
“I don’t think there have been many games where Rotherham fans or neutrals even have gone away and thought that we definitely deserved to lose.
“We just haven’t had that little bit of sugar when we’ve needed it.”
Warne has expressed how tired his side are because of the congested fixtures they’ve faced but he believes they need to ‘take their chances’.
“We’re still upbeat, I think the lads came away from the game on Saturday really positive from how we played.
“We need to take our chances, because we are running out of games.
“We’ve played virtually a quarter of a season in five weeks, it has been brutal but the effort from the lads cannot be questioned.”
