Neil Warnock can make it mission accomplished at Rotherham United by masterminding a win over his old club Huddersfield Town.

The 67-year-old was brought in on a short-term contract in February with the sole aim of keeping the Millers in the Championship.

Rotherham were third-bottom and had parted company with two managers, Steve Evans and Neil Redfearn, in the space of five months.

But the hugely experienced Warnock, who took Town into the second tier in 1995, has worked his magic at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham are unbeaten in nine games and have won six of them, and while 21st, they are nine points above the drop zone.

That means victory over Town, who are five places and two points higher, would all but seal safety.

And a Rotherham win combined with MK Dons failing to take all three points at Sheffield Wednesday would make absolutely sure.

“It would be nice to put it to bed, but I do not want us to relax,” said Warnock, a former Rotherham player.

“I really want this club to finish as high as they can. Huddersfield and Wolves (away on Saturday) are big games.

“They are great games as well, and I am still enjoying every moment here.”

Warnock, who has ex-Town players Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson among his coaching team, watched his side draw 0-0 at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

“It was a disappointment not to get three points and shoot up the table, but we will take what we have got now,” he added.

“You could see the effort the lads put in. We were a little bit sloppy first half, so we changed two or three things at half-time.

“I thought we could dominate the second half and to an extent we did, having a few chances. I was pleased with the second half.”
