Neil Warnock: Rotherham's survival finishing line is in sight

Rotherham boss Neil Warnock says his side can see the finishing line in their race for Sky Bet Championship survival.

The resurgent Millers made it nine games unbeaten after drawing 0-0 with Nottingham Forest on Saturday to register their best run at this level since 1982.


That sequence has propelled them out of the relegation zone and they remain nine points above MK Dons after Karl Robinson’s side could only draw at Preston.

While only hardcore doom-mongers would think Rotherham’s safety is anything other than cut and dried, mathematically they can still be overhauled by Charlton and the Dons.

But Warnock’s men could put the issue to bed on Tuesday when Huddersfield visit the New York Stadium.

"I'm delighted. It's a cracking point,” Warnock said of the Forest stalemate.

“Both sides will argue they should have won really. It was a case of two good defences. 

"A point probably suited both teams with the situation that we're in. You look at their squad on paper and why they're down there with us I'll never know.

"We've got Huddersfield on Tuesday, one of my old clubs, a lovely club. Their chairman, Dean Hoyle, spoke to me when I took over here and said: 'If anyone can do it, you lot can.' 

"And we're on our way now, aren't we? We're almost to the finishing line."

Rotherham could have been celebrating a seventh win from nine games had Richard Wood’s radar been on as the central defender missed a host of headed chances, the best of which he sent crashing into the crossbar from close range in the second half.

Warnock revealed that Wood was the victim of some ribbing after the game, with the boss himself even goading his central defender,

The boss added: "He's taken an absolute ribbing in the dressing room. He deserves it! I presented him with a matchball and said: "The referee's sent this, Woody. This is what you should have had.' 

"Have I ever seen a centre-half have so many chances in a game? Not from two inches and two feet out. I've seen them miss chances from the six-yard box. Even he doesn't know how he's done it. He says he should have had five. And that's only in one half!"
