The Millers, who Evans took charge of a fortnight ago, are unlikely to make the play-offs this season, sitting five points adrift of seventh-placed Crewe with two games to go.

But the 49-year-old will work his players hard in a bit to create the right mentality.

"You set a mentality where everything is winning," he said. "At Crawley if we drew it was a crisis. If you have got a winning mentality then you have a nasty streak.

"We have an intensity at which we work at. The players are fit, I would be demeaning if I said they weren't, but they're not fit enough. Some of them.

"I know it's the back end of the season, but the boys are going to come in and work."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
