Opposition view – Warnock relishing Wednesday clash

4 March 2016

Rotherham boss Neil Warnock says he is expecting a cracking game on Saturday at Hillsborough.

On top of the usual pressures that go with derby fixtures, there is extra significance attached this weekend with both sides needing the points for very different reasons.

The Millers are fighting for second tier survival and Warnock is looking forward to the occasion.

He said: “It might be my last chance to manage a team at Hillsborough so I am going to enjoy it.

“There is a rivalry there and I am sure that the fans who are going to turn out on Saturday will get right behind us. It will be a cracking game.”

The former Sheffield United manager added: “There is no doubt that I will get some stick, but I would like to think that they will appreciate the humour of it all as well.

“I think that South Yorkshire is the bedrock of football. People have told me about the London derbies and the ones in Scotland, but having been brought up in this area for me, these derbies are the ones.

“I am looking forward to my first one with Rotherham, I just hope the lads can perform and we are not fazed on the day.”
