Rotherham are not out of the woods yet says Neil Warnock

Rotherham boss Neil Warnock has offered a stern warning to his side, insisting they are not yet out of danger in the Sky Bet Championship.

A remarkable run of form over the last five weeks has seen the Millers pick up 13 points from 15 to catapult themselves out of the relegation zone, producing an 11-point swing over Fulham and an eight-point swing over over MK Dons, who are now both below Warnock's men in the league.

Given some of the results they have achieved over the last few games, which has seen three promotion chasers downed 1-0, it could be understandable to be optimistic about the Millers' chances.

But they are still only two points above the drop zone, highlighting how dire their plight was before the Warnock-inspired this run, and the boss says the job has not been done yet.

"We are not out of the woods by a mile but it is nice to see ourselves out of the bottom three and put pressure on other teams," he said.

"But we wont sit on our laurels. They know I'm not like that. I enjoy the championship, it is my cup of tea and I want to get as many points as I can."  

The Millers were staring relegation in the face before the Brentford game, which kicked off their superb run, as they were six points adrift of safety, winless in seven, and about to embark on a gruesome run of fixtures.

But 13 points from games with the Bees, Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough, Derby and Ipswich surpassed everyone's expectations and results in the latter four are almost certain to reward Warnock with the manager of the month award.

"You look at the fixtures, if we could have picked up four points in the last four games, you would be delighted really, and we've got 10," Warnock said.

"Thirteen points out of the last five games is a fantastic achievement from a group of lads who don't know when they're down. It's absolutely fantastic."

Skipper Kirk Broadfoot also suggested that the Millers' haul had surpassed their own target.

He added: "To get the points tally that we have against those teams going into the international break, I think we would probably have taken a wee bit less than that considering the games. 

"But what we've got we're delighted with."
