Gary Bowyer paid tribute to the support his side received in the FA Cup replay at the Etihad.
The manager had called on the fans to make their voices heard and they certainly did that, singing non-stop for 90 minutes.
"The supporters were magnificent, they made a hell of a noise and we are delighted with the following," said Bowyer.
"It is full praise to them, I think the fans realised the effort that the lads have put in tonight, they sung their hearts out, it was brilliant to see.
"Our supporters have been through a lot the last couple of years, the lads in there are saying what a following and what a tremendous noise they made.
"We have to use this now to spur us on for the rest of the season."
