Tough test ahead at Shrews - Evans

Last updated : 17 January 2014 By Deano

The home side have lost their last five in a row on their home patch, without even scoring a goal, but the New Meadow has seen the Millers take only one point away from there since it opened.

And the boss, whilst delighted with his teams progress this season, knows it won't be easy.

Evans told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Our progress has been staggering but to be where we want to be that progress needs to continue.

"Going into the transfer window your aim is to be better after it than you were before it. The players we've added will run through brick walls to be successful. Wes Thomas will always get a goal and I think there's some Championship clubs who were very annoyed that he's come here.

"Shrewsbury have lost games by the odd goal when they've dominated of late and we know going down there will be a tough afternoon."

Thomas and new signing Blair Turgott are expected to be in the Millers squad, whilst they will come up against former loanee Tom Eaves who is back with the Shrews for the rest of the season.
