Almost 900 fans made the journey to the Madejski Stadium, their backing throughout rewarded with a hard-fought win.
Gary Bowyer may have watched the match from the stands due to his one-match touchline ban, but he wasted little time in getting onto the pitch at the end of the game to show his appreciation.
"It is a difficult place to come, it is a long way to go and we appreciated their support," said the manager.
"We've said that all season, the players and staff all went over and we fully appreciated the support that we had."
Rovers are back in action next Saturday when they travel to take on Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok.
Tickets are currently on open sale priced from £28 Adults, £22 Seniors/Under-23s and £12 for Under-18s.
