Thanks to a number of games in hand owing to a coronavirus outbreak in their camp earlier this year, Rotherham have long been in control of their own survival destiny.
However, successive 1-0 losses to fellow strugglers Coventry City and Birmingham City has left United four points from safety with two games in hand on 21st-placed Derby County.
Paul Warne‘s men need to get a win on the board on Wednesday evening, then, especially with high-flying Barnsley and Brentford to come in their following two games.
That could prove tricky, though, as they have lost five of their last seven midweek league matches, most recently tasting defeat to Coventry last Thursday.
They occurred under the managerial figure who he will pit his wits against tonight in Middlesbrough chief Neil Warnock, who seemingly took on a lost cause with the Millers in the late winter of 2016 and enhanced his firefighting ‘Red Adair’ status to help the club to an inspired safety mission.
United were in the drop zone when Warnock came in in February. They ended the season nine points clear, going unbeaten in 11 games at one point.
A last-gasp win over a title-chasing Boro side was one of the high points. With time running out this time, the need for another three points is paramount. Warne, who gave his players Monday off to regroup after two tough defeats to Coventry and Birmingham, said:
I don’t believe it is over. My only frustration is we need to take our chances. In the ‘Great Escape’ when the ‘gaffer’ was here, we took our chances and there were games when we did not have 30 per cent of the ball and still managed to nick a 1-0.
