Everybody played their part - Bowyer

2 February 2015

Manager Gray Bowyer believes the Ewood Park faithful played a massive role in Rovers' 2-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday.

After goals from Ben Marshall and Jordan Rhodes put Rovers in a commanding position, Ross McCormack's reply for the visitors set up a potentially nervy finish.

The Rovers boss had issued a rallying call to the fans before the game and was delighted to hear the supporters really get behind the boys during the closing stages, as the hosts saw the game out with relative ease.  

"I thought the fans were terrific," said Bowyer. "They stuck with us. 

"There's always going to be spells in a game of football where you're under the cosh and I thought the fans' response was positive and you saw the effect that that had on the players - it was magnificent.

"Credit to our lads towards the end, because rather than get nervy, I think they were calm and the supporters were excellent in terms of cheering them on and seeing it through with us.

"I've said all along, it's a two-way thing and everybody's played their part today and we've got the three points, so I'm delighted."
