Paul Lambert would love to see the fans come out in force against Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday.

The Rovers boss was delighted with the reception that he and the players received at Deepdale last weekend, and has called for more of the same for his first game in charge at Ewood Park.

"At Preston they were excellent for us," said Lambert. "I've said before that they've had a lot of hard knocks at the football club so the win for them was great.

"At home we are going to need them again and if they can continue to back us, and have that relationship with us then there'll be times when their support will drag us over the line.

"It just needs somebody to do something on the pitch for the fans to get behind you."

Whilst it is the manager's Ewood bow, Lambert doesn't want the match against Wednesday to be about him. Insisting it is all about the players and the supporters.

He added: "As long the occasion doesn't deflect from what is going to happen on the pitch, I think that is important.

"This isn't about me, it is about the fans that are coming to watch us and the players that are playing on the day.

"If the players and the fans bounce off each other then we are going to have a really good chance, but we are up against a good side."

Tickets for this Saturday's game are on open sale with prices from £22 for Adults, from £14 Seniors and 18-21 year-olds and from just £9 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
