 A hard second season for the Millers last time, started with a embarrassing 4-0 opening day defeat at home to MK Dons. It never really picked up from their until Neil Warnock took over for the last 16 games, where they had a slight revival to guide them away from the relegation zone. So far, they haven’t really strengthened their squad, and it looks on the light side which will prove costly over the season. If they don’t recruit before the end of the window, the could find themselves in the bottom 3 for a majority of the season.
