Nerves Of Steel

Nerves Of Steel

It's bite your finger nails time for the supporters of Rotherham and MK Dons, with both clubs still facing the real threat of relegation on the final day of the season. The Dons are currently third from bottom in the standings, just two places and two points behind Rotherham

Respect to Danny Wilson and his players that they have given themselves an outside chance of staying up having been rock bottom just a few weeks ago. Their timely survival bid has come on the back of four successive victories, before losing at home to Tranmere last weekend. However, even a victory tomorrow might not be enough to keep them up if results go against them elsewhere.

Considering the magnetism of off-field problems at Millmoor, Rotherham's attempts to avoid the drop have been impressive, especially at home - only Chesterfield have taken three points at Millmoor since Alan Knill took over from Mick Harford in December.

Whatever happens tomorrow who if we stay up or go down, one thing is certain all Millers followers will be hoping next season's campaign runs a little more smoothly than this one.

Come on you reds one final push lads.

" cheers laticscarl , i don't think ronnie would want monkhouse to be honest , he's a show pony and only plays a handfull of games a season due to a persisent knee injury . we have a very good young goalkeeper who it will be hard to keep hold of for next season and i'm sure ronnie will be after him "
