Mowbray - I feel for the fans

8 May 2017

Tony Mowbray felt desperately sorry for the supporters after the disappointment of Sunday at Griffin Park.

The fans were out in healthy numbers once more as they watched their side defeat Brentford 3-1, but ultimately it wasn't enough as Rovers tasted relegation to League One.

The boss has said repeatedly how impressed he has been with the backing the side have had since taking over, but was just left disappointed that there wasn't anything to celebrate on the final day.

"It is just disappointing for them that there didn't seem to be an ounce of encouragement from elsewhere for them to get their teeth into really," said the manager after the match.

"I've said it time and time again since I've arrived, my first game was Burton away and there was a fantastic support. I was really surprised that night that there was so many Rovers fans because I was coming into the club on the acceptance that there was a lot of unrest and disenchantment and disconnect with the fans and the team and the ownership.

"I've only found real positives to be honest, and there they were again today in great numbers.

"It is just obviously disappointing for them that it didn't go right elsewhere for us."
