Despite Rotherham United’s unexpected 5-2 victory over Cardiff, manager Steve Evans remains optimistic about the future.

The Millers were the more clinical squad, winning only their fifth game of a terrible season that saw them finish 24 points behind safety.

Jordan Hugill and Tom Eaves both scored braces, as did the club’s other forward, Sam Nombe, while Cardiff’s Nat Phillips and Ollie Tanner also scored.

Evans stated, “Various managers and coaches have different styles. I believe the guys were startled that we went with three out-and-out strikers, but we expected to cause them issues.Rotherham enjoyed a continuous period of pressure in the second half, resulting in a five-point victory over Cardiff. A squad full of industry and endeavour, with some quality. The squad possesses quality. We just gave a fantastic send-off to the supporters who have endured a long, difficult season.

“The frontmen appeared very intimidating. The guys have been fantastic since we arrived.

“The future of this club is never in doubt.

. The supporters’ DNA will never change, but the team’s DNA has changed. “I believe we have set certain things in motion that will propel us forward into the next season. The harder you work, the lucky you become.

“The boys have worked incredibly hard for the three games we have been here.”
The attention at Cardiff now shifts to manager Erol Bulut’s future, with negotiations for a new contract underway. The visiting supporters sang that they wanted him to stay and improve on their 12th-place finish.

Bulut said, “I’ve already spoken several times.” We had great discussions with our chairman.

“I also need to make a decision for myself and the future. I believe it is better for

everyone that we make quicker decisions because we are losing time in many things “The priority is my family. I haven’t seen them for a long time so they miss me. Next week I will be with them and enjoy time with them.

“Finishing 12th out of 24 teams is a really good season for us. It is a massive step forward for the club and I hope we can continue to build. My guys did a good job this season. In general the season was successful. “Sometimes it is not easy in the last game.

“Rotherham are relegated and I think a little bit like the referee wanted to give them a present. So he helped them a little bit.

“It was a great atmosphere from the fans. The referee gave two wrong decisions, in my opinion. It’s not a penalty.”
