Steve Evans Appointed New Rotherham United Manager

Rotherham United have named Steve Evans as their new manager following their decision to sack Andy Scott on 19th March. Evans, who was the favourite in the betting, has signed a three-year deal with the club after impressing in his interview and with four matches of the season remaining he will now attempt to guide The Millers into the League Two play-offs. The move has raised eyebrows as Evans leaves Crawley Town who are currently 14 points ahead of Rotherham in the table and just two points off an automatic promotion spot.

Evans had been in charge of Crawley for nearly five years and guided them to the Blue Square Bet Premier title last season after amassing a record 105 points. He also led them to the fifth round of the FA Cup in the same season where they were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford. Evans has stated that he was attracted to Rotherham due to the ambition and vision of the South Yorkshire club, who have big plans to play in the Championship. He was also lured by the new stadium, which Rotherham will move into next season.

Evans was in the stands on Monday as he oversaw his new side beat Cheltenham 1-0 on Monday in what was the club’s third consecutive win. Evans now has four matches to try and guide his new club into the play-offs, starting with a game against third-placed Shrewsbury on Saturday. Shrewsbury have been installed as the odds-on 4/6 favourites with Paddy Power, with Rotherham available at 4/1 to come away with the win. Meanwhile a draw is available at 13/5. Rotherham will then play Morecambe at home, Aldershot away, before their final match of the season against Northampton on 5th May. The Millers can currently be found with odds of around 33/1 to get promoted at the end of the campaign.
