Steve Evans: Rotherham United manager dismisses job fears

Rotherham United have won 70 of the 169 matches since Steve Evans has been in charge

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans says he does not fear getting sacked, despite their poor start to the season.

The Millers are bottom of the Championship with only one point from their first five league matches.

But 52-year-old Evans, who has been in charge for 169 games since taking over in April 2012, believes he has the full backing of chairman Tony Stewart.

"I'm not frightened of the sack, that's the last thing I'm frightened of," Evans told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I work with my chairman every day. After the Fulham match he said that I would be the manager of Rotherham United for as long as I want to be as long as I turn up with the same determination."

Rotherham finished one place above the relegation zone last term and Evans believes the squad is good enough to climb the table this season.

"We've now got a squad in place to start the season and that begins at Charlton," he said.
