Rotherham manager Steve Evans has issued a rallying call to his depleted side as they look to bounce back from Saturday's horror show at Dagenham.

The Millers crashed to a humiliating 5-0 defeat against the Daggers and despite having nine first-team regulars on the injury list, Evans wants a response when high-flying Cheltenham visit the New York Stadium at the weekend.

"It is another time for all of us to stand up and be counted, the weak go hiding and the strong stay and fight," he said.

"The reality is that we have a game in hand of all our promotion contenders and three points from that would see us on level points with the team in fourth place.

"We are still far from happy with that, yet those around us and way below us are saying how great it is, it shows the standards and expectation levels we have here."
