LEEDS United are still involved in a Championship relegation battle according to Rotherham United boss Steve Evans.

Neil Redfearn’s Whites are one of the division’s most in-form sides with Saturday’s 1-0 victory at home to Millwall making it three wins from their last four games.

United now sit in the division’s top half in 12th – eight points clear of the dropzone – but Millers boss Evans says United’s tally of 38 points in no way leaves them safe from relegation. Rotherham are fifth bottom but would move to within two points of Leeds if they beat Derby County at the New York Stadium on Tuesday night.

Asked yesterday which teams were involved in the division’s relegation battle, Evans insisted everyone up to Leeds saying: “I keep hearing that they’re mid-table but if we win (against Derby) there’s two points difference. It goes all the way up to inside the top half that’s involved in this. I don’t think anyone on 38 points or below is not part of the battle.”
