Gary Bowyer has once again praised the backing that the fans have given his team.

Some 2500 Roverites cheered on their heroes at Turf Moor on Saturday as the match against Burnley ended 1-1. The supporters taking great delight as Jordan Rhodes' deflected effort cancelled out an earlier strike from Junior Stanislas.

"I thought the fans were magnificent," said Bowyer after the game. "They were outnumbered but they certainly weren't outsung that is for sure.

"You saw how much it meant to them at the end and we are just delighted that we can send them home happy."

The players don't have long to recover from the intensity of derby day as a trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City follows this Tuesday evening, with Bowyer wanting his team to show the same desire against the Foxes.

"The group have one the club proud, what we must do now and make sure that we try and follow that up on Tuesday night at Leicester.

"it is a quick turnaround, we go away from Burnley with our heads held high but we've got to go again against Leicester."

Supporters who are planning to watch Rovers take on Leicester City on Tuesday evening should allow extra travelling time.

Advance purchase prices are £28.00 Adults, £25.00 Senior Citizens aged over 65, £25.00 Under 22s, £18.00 Under 18s, £9.00 Under 12s and £7.00 Under 8s.

Tickets will be on sale on the day of the game from the King Power Stadium but supporters should note that prices will rise by £2 on matchday.
