The fans were the stars and we got there together

Boss Tony Mowbray has hailed the Rovers fans in attendance at the Banks's Stadium as the "stars of the show" following the win at Walsall.

Backed by 2,779 supporters in the Midlands, it was the biggest ever away following for a competitive fixture at Walsall's home ground.
And the boss was thrilled that a win sent the travelling masses back up the M6 in good spirits, claiming the win was achieved "together."
"Danny will get the plaudits with his two goals, but the stars of the show were the supporters and I’d like to think they’ve really enjoyed their day," the boss said after the game.
“They came for a party really. They encouraged, sung all game long and really got behind us. We got there together in the end, with the supporters driving the team on to dig really deep, particularly in the second half.
“You’d have liked some action down that bottom end where our fans were in the second half but it wasn’t to be. We’ll take the points, tick the game off and move to the next one."
The only tinge of disappointment for Mowbray was that the goals weren't scored at the other end, but we doubt Rovers fans will be too bothered about that!
“It would have been nice to reproduce that but their goal at half time swung a little bit of momentum," Tony reflected.
"You can’t be at the top of your game all the time. It was a professional, front foot, quality performance in the first half and we opened them up, created lots of chances and got some goals."

We look forward to seeing ANOTHER sell out following on Tuesday night at AFC Wimbledon.
