Rotherham United boss Steve Evans hails "biggest achievement" of his career

29 April 2015

Steve Evans described delivering Sky Bet Championship survival to Rotherham United as the "biggest achievement" of his career.

The Millers ensured their place in the second tier next season after goals from Matt Derbyshire and Lee Frecklington gave them a 2-1 win over Reading. The result condemned Wigan Athletic and Millwall to relegation to Sky Bet League 1.

Evans' managerial CV is decorated with promotions, including back-to-back ones in his first two years with the Millers, but winning the fight at the other end of the table is proving an enjoyable experience for the Scot.

He said: "I have won a lot of promotions and been at Wembley and won the Play-Offs, I think individually, this was the biggest result.

"In terms of being relieved, we thought we were over the line after Brighton. This for me was bigger than Wembley.

"Winning and keeping them up is the biggest achievement for me. This was always going to be the hardest task, now the ambition is to build on that.

"I am very proud of the football club. We have not got everything right, we have had to work tooth and nail to say in this competition, because there are some wonderful clubs."
