Rotherham United Manager Neil Warnock has been likening the squad he has now at Rotherham to the ones he managed at the likes of Scarborough, Notts County and Plymouth.

In the past couple of years Neil has attended re-unions with some of his former teams saying, ‘Six of the lads I had at Scarborough were here on Saturday to watch us.

‘They were all groups that grew together and when you are right that I wouldn’t say results get easier but everybody wants the same thing, they all know what each other are doing and they get on well off the field.

The Millers Boss carried on telling Rob Staton of Radio Sheffield, ‘When I look at those squads and see how they are still together this squad is very similar but whether they’ll be together in a years time you just don’t know.’

Neil has always said he enjoys working in the Championship and said, ‘Having worked in the Premier League and not really enjoyed aspects of it including the players’ response I look at the Championship and I don’t think there’s anyone to touch me at this level. My record is as good as anybody’s and I’ve got to show the lads what I want and why I’ve been successful.

‘Right from the start I said to them ‘you know how old I am, you know how many games are left and although I’m sure everybody in the country is thinking we’ll get relegated I’ve not come here for that.’ They’ve taken that on board and realised we can move mountains and it is possible to achieve the unachievable. And that’s what they’ve done.

‘I love it when I’ve got lads who are in the trenches with me and it’s nice to have a team that you don’t mind being in front of you or behind you. There are teams at this level who have a lot more money than us and you wouldn’t want some of their players in the trenches with you.’
