Rotherham United Chairman, Denis Coleman has this evening told RotherFM that there is some interest from potential investors although he also stressed that a lot hasn't really changed since the announcement on Monday that the club might go into administration.
He said he was always optimistic and that they were in talks with several people who they have to check out and make sure they are genuine but it is encouraging that people are taking notice.
He was very guarded when speaking about the Inland Revenue, who, it has been said, haven't been paid and said 'We will speak on a one to one basis. But everyone at the club has been paid their money.
'When we came in and rescued the club we got rid of the debt and the club was still losing £140,000 a month. It's not losing anything as near as that now but we've had to chip away at every part of the club and we have taken it as far as we can and to take it further we now need help. We will speak to anyone who wants to invest but I would prefer it to be local people or business men. You know, I am sure there is enough money in this town to take this club forward and get a new Community Stadium and this is something we have been working on for two years. Not just me but the Council have been doing a lot of work behind the scenes that people don't see. And, I wouldn't like to say that having a new Community Stadium will be the be all and end all of Rotherham United's problems. Like a lot of other football league clubs we are struggling and that's due to the state of football today - nothing is filtering down from the top.
'If people want to help the best thing for them to do is get down to Millmoor and support the club. Mark (Robins)has put a good side together here and we deserve more support - we are still in fifth place and, fingers crossed, at the end of April will be up there.'
Mr Coleman was asked if there was anything he would hope for the end of the season and he said, 'just one word, promotion.'
