Shane Duffy and Corry Evans were both impressed with the backing the players received in the 2-1 win over Preston North End on Saturday.

Both players took time out to express their gratitude for the support from the fans as Paul Lambert's reign as manager got off to a winning start.

The pair played a key role in Rovers' opening goal, as midfielder Evans saw his shot strike the post and although Duffy's follow-up was blocked on the line the ball rebounding off goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and into the back of the net.

Jordan Rhodes doubled Rovers' advantage from the penalty spot, but whilst Joe Garner pulled a goal back for Preston, the 5,500 Rovers fans cheered their side home to victory.

"I thought we had great support, they really drove us on and it was nice to get the win," said Evans.

"I thought the fans were outstanding they really pushed us on. Even at the end they stayed behind singing and it was a great feeling to have.

"So hopefully we can continue this great feeling and get another win this week."

Shane Duffy was also delighted: "It was brilliant, you could hear them from the first until the last minute.

"They got us through it in the end, it was brilliant support from them.

"They've been like that all season to be fair and hopefully we can get the results for them now and climb up the league."
