Rotherham United Manager, Steve Evans, wants the last game at Don Valley Stadium to be a win for the Millers.

Having spent four long, and often lonely, years at the athletics stadium, tomorrow sees the Millers play their last ever game there with new boss Evans saying, ‘we want to go out of there with a win – it`s what the fans deserve.`

Speaking to Les Payne of The Star, Evans said, ‘We know it`s not ideal for football and I know what the fans think of having had to watch their team there for the past four years. But, in time when you look back, it will be an essential part of the history of this football club. The chairman had to take the club away from Millmoor and had this ground not been available then there might not have been a football club. And, didn`t he promise back then that he would take the club home? Well, he`s kept that promise and it`s something everyone is looking forward to.

‘But, firstly and finally, we have a job to do there tomorrow and our fans will be expecting us to win and so will I.`
