THEY'RE rock-bottom of League I, 10 points away from the safety zone, and haven't won in 11 matches.
But Town boss Peter Jackson is still expecting one of the toughest tests of the season at Rotherham tonight (7.45).
"We came unstuck against one side battling for their lives on Saturday," said Jackson, referring to the 2-0 home loss to Brentford.
"Now we have to make sure we avoid a repeat against Rotherham, who will be just as desperate to get the three points."
Rotherham suffered the seventh defeat of their winless spell away to Scunthorpe on Saturday.
But Jackson is well aware that the not-so-merry Millers made the league leaders fight all the way for their 1-0 victory.
"We've had their last couple of games watched, and the scouting reports make interesting reading," revealed the Galpharm chief, whose side were 3-0 home winners over Rotherham back in August.
"They scrapped all the way for a goalless draw at Brighton, and they were unlucky not to get at least a point at Scunthorpe.
"In the second half especially, they were the more dominant side, and as well as missing a penalty (by Eugene Bopp), they hit a post and had a couple well saved.
"The warning signs are there and we have to be ready for a battle."
Having become the second club (after Wrexham) to suffer a 10-point deduction for going into administration under a new League rule, Rotherham knew they would be up against it this season.
But after their last victory, 3-2 at home to Yeovil on December 2, Alan Knill's side were 19th and in with a great chance of pulling off a remarkable survival act.
But a slump in form and the loss of key players Will Hoskins and Lee Williamson to Watford led to a slide back down to the bottom.
The departure of Rotherham's prize assets - Hoskins had netted 16 times and Williamson six - generated £1.2m, which according to Knill, ensures the Millmoor club can remain in business for the next two seasons, giving the board vital time to restore financial stability.
Knill has been able to sign two players, ex-Halifax midfielder Craig Fleming from Norwich and and Leicester striker Chris O'Grady, both of whom will make their home debuts tonight.
He has also brought in two players on loan - Norwich forward Ian Henderson and Derby defender Theo Streete.
