Millers eye deal for Slew

Rotherham United are set for talks with their Blackburn Rovers counterparts aimed at extending the loan spell of striker Jordan Slew.

But if Rovers do not allow the forward - who played the last game of his one-month deal on Tuesday night at Oxford United - to remain at the New York Stadium until the end of the season, then other striking options will be considered.

“We’d like to keep Jordan, because he’s made a real impact,” Paul Raynor, number two to Millers manager Steve Evans, said.

Raynor, meanwhile, believes that Rotherham’s recent never-say-die attitude demonstrates their commitment to achieving promotion to League One this term.

First, Daniel Nardiello’s 90th minute strike sealed a point against York City, and Johnny Mullins’ last-gasp goal earned a 1-1 draw at Southend United last weekend.

“The aim is to come into good form when it really matters,” Raynor added.

“There is a real belief amongst the squad now.

“And the fact that we’ve come back to draw late on in a couple of games, shows the character we have.

“There’s a lot of spirit and a lot of desire from the boys to nick points, which could prove valuable.”

After Tuesday evening’s game at Oxford, Evans’ men host mid-table Dagenham and Redbridge.

Wayne Burnett’s Daggers haven’t won since February 9.
