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."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
