Outstanding support

7 March 2015

Gary Bowyer wants Rovers to win Sunday's FA Cup match against Liverpool to reward the supporters for their loyal backing.

Rovers will be roared on by almost 6000 fans at Anfield as they look to clinch a semi-final spot at Wembley.

The ticket allocation for the quarter-final was snapped up in just three days to guarantee great backing for the lads, with Bowyer full of praise for their efforts.

"I think our away support throughout my time has been phenomenal," Bowyer told Rovers Player.

"Only last weekend we took over 750 to Bournemouth, and on the back of knowing that they are away at Sheffield Wednesday and away at Liverpool, the expense that they must have paid is a fantastic effort for them.

"So for us to be taking 6000 and making a hell of a noise - which I know they will do - they are really going to have to play their part and we are really looking forward to that.

"I think it is full credit to them and they deserve it for obviously sticking by us the last couple of years in terms of what they have been through.

"So the fact that we can give them something to go and enjoy at such a great place like Liverpool is great.

"For a lot of them it will be about reliving memories of when they won the Premier League 20 years ago. So I really hope they go and enjoy themselves.

"To see a sea of blue and white will be a massive lift to the players."
Rovers supporters are planning to mark the 20th anniversary of the club winning the title at Anfield by holding a minutes applause in the 20th minute, something Bowyer fully endorses.

"I've been told that and I think that's outstanding," added the boss. "Hopefully we can continue that applause throughout the game."
