Rotherham United manager Steve Evans admits he has huge respect for Russell Slade after the Millers sealed a League 1 play-off final clash with Leyton Orient at Wembley.

United defeated Preston 3-1 and 4-2 on aggregate last night to keep their hopes of a second consecutive promotion alive.

Evans told the club website: "It was unthinkable at the start of the season, and we were some people’s favourites to get relegated but I’ve got huge respect for Russell Slade, he’s a grafter, and like me he lives away from his family.

"He’s got little Coxy [Dean], he’s got Mooney [David], Lloyd James, and I could go through the whole team because they’re like us. They’ve got a team who are honest and work hard and like us they’ll give it a right go."
