Owen Coyle paid tribute to the travelling supporters as Rovers stunned Newcastle United with a 1-0 away victory.

Some 1500 Rovers fans were in attendance at St. James' Park, with their non-stop backing rewarded with all three points thanks to Charlie Mulgrew's expertly taken goal 15 minutes from time.

The Rovers boss was delighted with the support that the side received and was just as pleased to send them all home happy.

"We were backed by an unbelievable support," the manager told Rovers PlayerHD. "We had 1500 fans there today but it felt like there was 15,000 because of the noise that they made.

"They were vocal and that is why at the end we made sure that everyone of us went together as a group to thank the fans for that support.

"Equally they can go home tonight thanking the players for their level of performance that they have given today. They were absolutely brilliant."

Rovers are back in action next Saturday when Huddersfield Town are the visitors to Ewood Park. Tickets are on open sale priced from £22 for Adults, £14 for Concessions and £9 for Juniors under 18.
