Rotherham boss Neil Warnock confident of survival

Rotherham boss Neil Warnock believes his side have a "fighting chance" of beating the Sky Bet Championship drop.

The Millers suffered a 20th league defeat - more than anyone in the top six levels of English football - when they went down 2-0 at promotion-chasing Burnley on Saturday.

However, they did not lose any further ground at the foot of the table as MK Dons were beaten, meaning the Millers stay five points adrift of safety.

While the fixtures are unkind over the next few weeks, Warnock believes the Millers have enough to stay up.

"They are a good group of lads and they just have to enjoy the last 14 games now," Warnock said. 

"They are going to give us everything until the end of the season and when you are a manager in the dugout you can't ask for any more.

"I do think we have got a fighting chance. If we get the rub of the green and take our opportunities, I think we can come close.

"I am really happy, they can't be too down.
"You don't play Burnley every week. We have got some tough games but teams that we will play against will have some tough games. 

"We are looking forward to the challenge." 

If the Millers had taken their opportunities at Turf Moor it could have been a completely different story.

With Warnock's men trailing 1-0 with 10 minutes to go and having barely threatened, their golden chance to equalise came after Joe Newell broke into the box but he put his shot wide when it was easier to score.

Burnley went up to the other end six minutes later to make the game safe and Warnock knows his side can ill-afford to be so wasteful.

"You are not going to get too many chances in the game like that," he said. 

"Joe is disappointed because he could have just side-footed it in, he rushed it a little bit.

"It would have been a nervous end to the game, but it's not to be. Their lad (Andre) Gray would have just stroked it in really."
