The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

STEVE EVANS has backed Joe Newell to take the Cham­pi­onship by storm this sea­son – and po­ten­tially out­grow Rother­ham.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who has been fill­ing in at left-back, signed a three­year deal with the Millers ear­lier this month.

And boss Evans says the for­mer Peterborough star­let has all the at­tributes to suc­ceed at the high­est level.

“If he keeps play­ing the way he has in his last two games, the kid will go on to higher things,” he said.

“He was in the Cham­pi­onship a few years ago with Peterborough. Some weeks I’d go and see their matches when we weren’t play­ing and he was stun­ning.”
