Rotherham United boss has huge respect for Leyton Orient's Russell Slade after Millers reach Wembley final
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."
