Rotherham didn’t need much coaxing to return to the Championship following relegation a year ago, they bounced straight back at the first time of asking.
Paul Warne’s side came through the play-offs to beat both Scunthorpe United and two-time Wembley losers Shrewsbury, giving them an immediate return to the level they left in 2017.

The life of a Miller’s fan hasn’t always been easy, but promotion last season rubber-stamped the end of their seemingly endless struggles against financial demise.
That survival will only be preserved by strong evolution of the squad, with dead wood being cashed in and reinvested in Championship ready players. Here, FLW identifies two players for whom the final bell may well be tolling at the New York Stadium.
