The Millers have won their last five away games in npower League Two but have not been on the road since the 2-1 win at Rochdale on New Year's Day.

They travel to the Pirelli Stadium at the weekend to face a Burton side who harbour the best home record in the division, winning 10 and drawing three of their 15 games.

And Evans knows his side will have to be at their best if they are to continue their impressive form.

"They are a top side, we beat them 3-0 on the opening day of the season and I said then that they will challenge," Evans said.

"I know their manager (Gary Rowett) well and he has good some good players. They are the team who have the most wins at home and if they'd mirrored that away from home they'd be on top of the league by a country mile.

"We know their players and their system and how they are going to play, so we know we are in for a tough afternoon, but we will work hard.

"We will be strong and resolute and defend with our brains and hearts and attack with venom."
