The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By James Rob­son

ROTHER­HAM United boss Steve Evans is not an easy man to please, ac­cord­ing to his right-hand man Paul Raynor.

Fol­low­ing pro­mo­tion to League One last sea­son, the Millers are firmly in the play­off spots and headed into this weekend on a six-match un­beaten run.

How­ever, Raynor re­vealed the man­ager is rarely sat­is­fied and ex­pects his side to con­tinue over­achiev­ing and push for au­to­matic pro­mo­tion.

“He’s very am­bi­tious,” said the as­sis­tant man­ager. “He pushes the boys and gets that lit­tle bit ex­tra out of ev­ery­body and he gets a re­sponse from people.

“We knew we’d never be happy with mid-ta­ble. The gaffer is al­ways moan­ing and groan­ing say­ing we should be there, we should be do­ing this, we should have had two more points there.

“Yes, we’re happy where we are but we are set­ting our sights even higher.

“It’s prob­a­ble that the fans will be dis­ap­pointed if we don’t fin­ish the job but that’s fans for you isn’t it? They want suc­cess and they want it now, which is great and they’ve been fan­tas­tic.

“But you try to keep it sub­dued a lit­tle be­cause you don’t want to be shot in the foot and get too big for our boots.”

AM­BI­TIOUS: Steve Evans
