Show our support

12 April 2014

The football family will come together this Saturday afternoon to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer was there on that fateful day, a 17-year-old supporting Nottingham Forest with friends in the opposite stand.

It will be an emotional occasion for all concerned before Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday go head-to-head but Bowyer knows that the supporters will respect the occasion.

Bowyer said: "It is really important that our fans and our club show the support and the respect to the families of Liverpool Football Club that sadly lost people at a football match.

"When you put it like that it really does hit you, those people left their homes to go and watch a football match and never returned and that is the sadness of the disaster.

"We have to go and show our support and our love for those families."
