Incredible, fabulous, remarkable, proud - Neil Warnock on Rotherham's 10-game unbeaten run

Rotherham may have missed out on the chance of completing their great escape when drawing 1-1 with Huddersfield but boss Neil Warnock is only interested in lauding up his side’s 10-game unbeaten run.

The Millers’ draw, which puts them on the brink of Championship safety, meant that their survival cannot be guaranteed until Saturday’s trip to Wolves.

It does, however, send their sequence since last losing into double figures, equalling the run achieved by Emlyn Hughes’ side in 1981-82.

Their scorching form, consisting of six wins and four draws, could not have been more timely as in the face of adversity it has propelled the Millers away from the drop zone and makes them one of just six teams to have a 10-game unbeaten run in the Championship this season.

And that’s where Warnock’s focus was rather than dwelling on letting a chance to get over the line against the Terriers.

“I have nothing but praise for them,” he said. “We have equalled a record, 10 games unbeaten in the Championship going back to Emlyn Hughes' days, that's what sort of record it is and it would be nice for us to beat that record at Wolves.

“You forget just what these lads have put in in the last few weeks from being six points adrift to nine points in front with three games left, it's an incredible feat really.

“It's a fabulous achievement, but I want to beat that now at Wolves.

“It's a difficult league this you know, apart from MK Dons we have the smallest budget and since I have been here they have been remarkable.

“We have been close to being undefeated and I can't ask any more than that.

“I do like records, I have got to say, but I don't think about it. I know how tough the Championship is so to go 10 games unbeaten is incredible to say we came in at a time where we were shipping goals like a sieve and we weren't scoring, it wasn't a very good recipe really.

“It shows what you can do with a good group of lads who want to do it well. The fans should be really proud of the lads because they have really put shifts in this week and they are going to get the rewards.”
