Evans recorded a third successive promotion as manager, after leading Crawley to back-to-back rises, when he got the Millers back into League One after a six-year absence.

Although they were heavy pre-season favourites, they made hard work of it until a run of five wins in a row earned a second-placed finish.

"Personally it is relief," Evans said. "I have had a number of promotions but this is the most special by a country mile.

"This is a fantastic football club with an incredible fanbase, you only have to see what it means to them.

"Martin Allen said last week that he usually gets an SOS call to go and save clubs from relegation, well maybe I'll start getting them to win sides promotion."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
