Come and be our twelfth man - Stewart

Last updated : 05 March 2010 By Deano
With the crunch part of the season looming and still 42 points up for grabs, Stewart told the clubs official site it would be nice to beat the seasons best crowd against Notts County.

He said: "It should be a good game, another local derby, another sell out within the corporate areas and the information coming from Bradford is that they are looking at an away following of approximately 1500.

"Although the result on Tuesday was disappointing I am still confident we have more than enough in our locker to continue to push on for an automatic promotion place. It is a mouth-watering month with us playing teams that are surrounding us within the league table."

Stewart then went on to praise the away following, which has been decent all season, but particularly for the past two matches.

"The support from the stands over the last few games has been magnificent with close on 1000 fellow Millers making the journey to Spotland on Tuesday night, and before that, 1160 for the victory at Burton Albion," he added.

"It really does remind me about what this Club will be again - a well supported Club driven by our collective ambition, with genuine synergy and unity between the Club and supporters.

"The vocal support has been noticeably louder and I am aware that there has been a conscious effort amongst fans for this to happen - I am grateful for that as I know that it definitely makes a big difference," continued Stewart.

"Our largest attendance so far this season has been our game against Notts County when we had 5738, with 1377 making the journey from Nottingham. Saturday's game is a local derby against a well supported team so it should be a good atmosphere.

"We are still in a strong position and wouldn't it be nice to get a gate over 6,000 for the first time this season?"
