Rotherham United boss Paul Warne knows his side can’t afford to lose either of their last two matches if they are to escape the drop.
The Millers travel to Luton Town on Tuesday night in their game in hand, and it presents Rotherham with another chance to potentially lift themselves out of the relegation zone at Derby’s expense ahead of the final round of fixtures on Saturday.
Warne’s side follow up the trip to Kenilworth Road with a finale against Cardiff City in South Wales, whilst Derby and Sheffield Wednesday do battle on the last day in another game which will significantly affect the landscape of the final table.
“If we are to stay up, I think we’ll need at least four points,” Warne told the media ahead of Tuesday night’s game.
“It would be an amazing story and one that I would like to tell my grandkids in the future.
“If we get three points, we’ll be out of the bottom three but Derby are playing Sheffield Wednesday on the last day and one of those you would definitely think is going to want three points.
“I think even if we win on Tuesday, we’re going to have to back it up again. We can’t have an ‘L’ beside our name in the next two games.
“It would be nice if we could get a win or it might be that we get an 86th minute wondergoal from Wingy (Lewis Wing) again, we get a draw and it goes down to the last game of the season and we cross our fingers that they (Derby and Sheffield Wednesday) cancel each other out.
“Stranger things have happened and sport is great for that. Like if you watched our team on Saturday and you are a Rotherham fan you probably needed a good lie down after the game.
“Hopefully we’ll be in it after the game on Tuesday night to go to Cardiff on my birthday and make dreams come true, which would be great.”
