Rotherham managerial search continue as Nicky Eaden prepares to face the media

Caretaker Nicky Eaden will face the media today as Rotherham's search for a new manager continues behind the scenes.

Eaden was plunged into temporary charge of the Millers following shock Neil Redfearn's sacking on Monday less than a week after joining the club.

The former Leicester coach is preparing the side for Saturday's crucial clash with Birmingham, though there remains a chance he will not be in charge if the Millers board decide on their new man before then.

Their search is approaching its business end, with former Miller Neil Warnock still believed to be the man the club want to save their season

There are other candidates in the frame, though, with interviews taking place today. Former Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray and former Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer, who used to play for the Millers, are understood to be in contention.

The Millers are keen to fill the vacancy as soon as possible, having sacked Redfearn as a desperate act to stay in the Championship.

The job looks certain to be until the end of the season only, with the club then re-evaluating their long-term plan in the summer.

Warnock fits the bill in that respect, with him also being a popular choice on the terraces, so the board will be desperate for today's meeting to go well.

Warnock is not the only man willing to answer the Millers' SOS on a short-term basis, with chairman Tony Stewart revealing the club have been inundated with applications.

“There’s a lot of managers out of work. But when you filter that down, we are looking for someone who has got that experience and X-Factor. There’s two or three we are interested in.

“We have had lots of applications. The run-of-the-mill merry-go-ones and some good ones from people in and out of jobs. It’s been quite flattering.

“It is commendable that certain people are saying ‘look, let’s just have the 16 games’. People out there like a challenge.”
