Millers buzzing to equal club record

Last updated : 06 April 2009 By Deano
The current record has stood proud since the 1950/51 season, as Mark Robins men look for another three points which will make it just one defeat in 14 matches overall.

Back to back wins at Luton and Aldershot saw the Millers mathematically safe from an exit to the Blue Square Premier, and whilst a few fans still have dizzy heights set on a top seven charge, boss Robins was happy to put off the players holiday abroad this week which was promised to them if they achieved safety.

He told the Star: "We can finish in the equivalent of the top three. It was right to go for it, everyone agreed and we'll put the holiday idea aside," he said.

"We have re-set our goals. It's putting a different type of pressure on them but it's good.

"The players have had to be mentally tough and now this is a further test for them to stay up where they are now."

The Millers would sit in second spot if not for their points deduction and are currently 10 points off a play-off birth, the first of their remaining two games in hand on other clubs being tomorrow's clash at Underhill.
