The Millers have just slipped off the pace having only won one of their last five, and they travel to Morecambe on Saturday four points off the top three.

Home games with Exeter and Fleetwood follow, before back-to-back away games at Bradford and Plymouth. The season comes to a close against Aldershot at New York Stadium and Evans is hoping his side will be celebrating.

"We have got six games left to earn the right to win automatic promotion," he said. "We have got a difficult run-in, the teams down at the bottom fighting for their lives are just as difficult games as any other.

"Every game is must win at this stage. It's a pressure situation. We have got a game in hand, two on some others, and no one gives us any recognition, but we are happy with that. We have to focus on one game at a time.

"But would I have taken these six games when we started in July to have the chance of automatic promotion."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
