'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Knill Remains Upbeat

Rotherham boss Alan Knill insists his players must continue fighting desperately against the drop and avoid off-field distractions.

The financially-crippled millers strugglers need to raise 1million by the end of the season to prevent going into liquidation.

A desperate appeal was launched last week after chairman Peter Ruchniewicz revealed the club were losing 140,000 a month.

However, after a 2-0 win against Bournemouth on Tuesday night, Knill admitted there was some light at the end of the tunnel.

'Over the past week I seem to talk about everything but football,' he said. 'There is a lot of doom and gloom around the club and it is our job to lift everyone.

'It was a real battling performance against Bournemouth. We have played well before but have not got the results.'

This saturday the millers travel to swindon town and if there is to be any realistic chance of survival on the field, 3 points are a must
