RUFC - Evans 'got some big decisions to make'

Rotherham United Manager, Steve Evans was delighted with the quality of the performance of the reserves on Monday afternoon as they beat Gateshead three-nil at Parkgate.

Steve, who shook hands with all the watching fans and also had a word with many, told MillersPlayer, 'It`s certainly given us some thought for Saturday.

'It`s important that between now and the 5th May we try and win some points, score some goals and finish the season on a high and take advantage if other should slip up. It`s also important that we look at each and every member of the squad because we`ve got some big decisions to make in about two weeks time.

'We accept that the opposition wasn`t the strongest and that reserve games are always played differently to first team games but there are some lads who have done themselves justice and I`m sure there are some players who went in the dressing room after the game who thought 'well, I`ve shown the gaffer and Paul Raynor what I can do.

'As long as it`s mathematically possible for us to get in the play-offs then we are going to give it everything we`ve got and be as strong as it can be. But, when it goes beyond that, I think the supporters will want Steve Evans to give the other lads an opportunity. For instance, what about Andy Warrington? Does he go forward with us? And there`s Mark Bradley and a whole host of players that are out of contract that we need to make decisions on. And we need to make those decisions knowing with a hundred per cent in our heads and our hearts that we`ve made them for the benefit of this football club.`

Asked about the younger players, Evans said that Paul Raynor and Darren Sarll would be talking together but said, 'I don`t think anyone could fail to be impressed with Mitch Rose, he`s box-to-box and with his effort, his commitment, his passing he looks a few years older than he actually is and, all being well, he`ll go forward with us. And it`s that type of player we want to almost be the little nail in the haystack if you like that goes in and unsettles a few feathers and forces himself into the squad and the team. And, all being well, who knows, towards the last game he might find himself involved.`
