The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

ROTHER­HAM need look no fur­ther than south Wales for their in­spi­ra­tion this year – that’s ac­cord­ing to Millers boss Steve Evans.

The Millers punched above their weight to stay in the Cham­pi­onship at the first time of ask­ing last sea­son.

And Evans be­lieves his side can es­tab­lish them­selves in the sec­ond tier in much the same way Swansea have since their pro­mo­tion to the Premier League in 2011.

“We need to es­tab­lish our­selves as a Swansea of the Cham­pi­onship,” he said.

“They are mid-ta­ble in the Premier League and can they kick on? I think they can.

“We now need to be­come a side that peo­ple see as a solid sec­ond-tier club.”
