Sympathy for the supporters

Gary Bowyer believes the fixture computer could have been a little kinder to the Rovers supporters.

Following on from the international break, Rovers are back in action this Sunday lunchtime with an away match against Fulham, followed by a return to the capital for the midweek clash with Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday.

The Rovers boss feels for the fans who will make the trip to London twice in succession and thinks that those in charge of the fixtures should give more thought to the supporters who follow their team up and down the country.

"I think for the sake of the supporters, the powers that be could certainly look at organising them a bit better than that," said Bowyer.

"Some of our supporters have to fork out a lot of money to travel down there and back up, and then they have to go back down there a couple of days later.

"I think there are other ways that they could sensibly look at the midweek fixtures. There's not that many throughout the course of the season but the way that they are organised is something that they should look at, certainly for the sake of the supporters."

Fans can pay on the day at Craven Cottage this lunchtime with matchday prices of £30 for Adults, £25 for Seniors aged 65 & over, £25 for 17 - 21’s and £15 for Juniors aged 16 and under.

Not going to London? Then why not watch the big match in Blues Bar at Ewood Park? Doors open from 11am on Sunday with Fosters and John Smith's available at just £2 a pint until the first goal is scored!
