Rotherham want back-to-back promotions - Tony Stewart

New York Stadium

Rotherham United chairman Tony Stewart has set a target of successive promotions after the club finished second in League Two.

Manager Steve Evans saw the Millers secure a return to League One after a 2-0 win over Aldershot on Saturday.

Stewart told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Steve believes and the fans have seen us play good League One sides.

"We'll be striving for the pinnacle, which is automatic promotion. We'll be carrying our momentum into League One."

Former Crawley boss Evans guided the club to a first promotion since 2001 in his first full season with the club.

Stewart, who said last week he wanted the Scot to extend his contract, praised the job Evans has done since replacing Andy Scott in April 2012.

"To have 30 players come in and out of the football club and get automatic promotion is nothing short of a miracle," he added.

"He is a very hardworking individual and I speak to him every day. He drives himself hard and he likes success.

"We'll sit down this week to talk about what we're doing and where we're going."
