Vital Rotherham on:
Rotherham United`s Assistant Manager Kevin Blackwell says that although all the remaining games are ‘big` the one on Saturday against MK Dons no exception.
‘The importance of this game is massive but it`s not as big as it could have been. That`s a big thing for us and we can go there and it`s not the end of the world if we lose. Four or five weeks ago we couldn`t have thought about that.
‘So yes, it`s a massive game but it`s not a game where we are under so much pressure.
‘But should we win I think it will go a long way to seeing us home. We`ve all agreed that we are going to drive as hard as we can until the end of the season but if we mirror any of the bottom teams` results then we are home and dry.
‘And our goal difference is good which could give you another point. So as long as we don`t start conceding six and seven it`s a massive thing for us.
‘But we don`t want to get carried away. And the lads showed that at Bristol City where they really wanted to make sure we stayed in the game and with all that was going on around them they stayed focused.
‘We do respect Milton Keynes because the work that Karl Robinson has done there hasn`t gone unnoticed but we are thoroughly focused on staying up.
‘The game`s going to be interesting but the pressure is on MK Dons who have to do something and that`s a dangerous time as a manager when your team has to go and win. There are no ifs, buts or maybes they have to do something.`
