Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans believes that if striker Danny Ward hadn’t missed five games his team could well have been already making plans to play in the Championship next season.

As it is, the Millers players won`t be making plans for their holidays, instead they have a possible nervy three games ahead of them – and that`s without the threat of a point`s deduction.

Not having a game at the weekend most Millers fans were glued to the media willing Cardiff to score on Saturday – it ended goalless which wasn`t the worst scenario for Steve Evans` lads. And last night we all breathed out when goals late on in the game for Blackburn saw Millwall defeated.

As I see it whatever the Football League dish out to us (and surely the worst case will be a three points deduction) if the Millers win on Saturday against Norwich City and both Wigan and Millwall lose then we can breathe a little easier and look at being in the second tier next season.

Speaking to Paul Davis of The Star the Millers Boss said that Danny Ward has a big part to play in the next three games.

‘He`s incredibly fit now compared to where he was when he joined our football club,` the Gaffer said. ‘I gave Paul Warne an opportunity to work with him and Paul has gone and carried out that plan to a T.`

Since joining the Millers in January Danny was just getting to the peak of his time when he got a foot injury in training which was then followed by knee problems.

Now, back to match fitness Steve Evans said of the twenty-four year old, ‘I think he would have made a real difference in the five games he was missing.`

Let`s hope he comes out all guns blazing on Saturday against Norwich – and a goal or two would be nice!
