Rotherham United will be the focus of a meeting of the Football League in London today and could, hopefully, find out their fate sooner rather than later.
It is likely that the League will dock between fifteen and twenty points so the Millers, once again, will have to claw their way upto 'no points' before making a real start on the season.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, manager, Mark Robins, said, 'We might have points deducted but at least the lads will know they will be getting paid. Nobody else can hurt us now.
'It would have been so easy to walk away at the end of last season but it never crossed my mind to do that. But, it was draining and energy sapping. We couldn't prepare properly for games and the staff and players weren't being paid. It was a tough time for everyone at the club and at times like that you need an understanding partner or wife - thankfully, mine has been different class!'
Tony Stewart came in and effectively saved the Millers in May and Robins says, 'There is no doubt in my mind that Tony will be a great Chairman for us. He wants to get us back in Rotherham and when he says he is going to do something he means it. My first job is to make sure we get the results and sustain our League position. We have to get our house in order and we can't afford to sit here and feel sorry for ourselves.
'There's been a lot of meetings this summer and a lot of travelling between Sheffield for playing, Doncaster for training and Rotherham for administration, although we have found a couple of sites in Rotherham where we hope to be training within the next twelve months. Once the club is on a stable footing it will be important that we have the scope to develop any training ground into an Academy or School of Excellence.'
Speaking about his own future, Robins carried on, 'I am not looking at other people's jobs and of course I want to manage as high as I can but that is firmly in the future. I want to see this job through here. I care about this club and I am proud of what our players have done in difficult times.'
