Rotherham United could be relegated this weekend

  • Video report by John Shires

Rotherham United could be relegated to League One this weekend, if results go against them.

The Millers have won just four games all season.

This weekend face QPR in West London - where relegation to the third tier could be confirmed with eight games to go.

The South Yorkshire club will be relegated if:

  • They lose, relegation rivals Blackburn and Nottingham Forest both win, and Burton Albion avoid defeat.

OR

  • Blackburn win, Burton avoid defeat and Forest pick up a point. Rotherham would then only be able to draw level on points with Forest - and go down on goal difference.

Warne still not up for Millers job full time

Rotherham United's caretaker manager Paul Warne has again insisted he doesn't want the job on a full time basis. The Millers remain bottom of the Championship table after Tuesday's defeat at Fulham, but since Warne took charge following Kenny Jackett's sacking, they've shown definite signs of improvement. Tomorrow they're at Hillsborough for a South Yorkshire derby against neighbours Sheffield Wednesday, and today Warne spoke to Calendar.

The transfer for the 22-year-old is due to go through tomorrow and he has joined up with his new team mates for the first day of pre-season training this morning.

He becomes new manager Alan Stubbs' first signing as Millers boss.

Forde enjoyed a productive spell with Walsall playing a major role in their run to the Play-off semi-finals last season.

In his first season he made 46 appearances in all competitions for the Saddlers, laying the foundations for a tilt at promotion last season.
