Charlie: The fans dragged us through games at times

The skipper hails the support that you've all given the team this term

Reflecting on a memorable campaign, Rovers skipper Charlie Mulgrew says the supporters have been a key reason for promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

It was of course Charlie, whose goal sealed a Rovers return to the second tier at Doncaster Rovers in late April in the wind and the rain.

More than 4,000 were packed into the Keepmoat Stadium that evening, but wherever Rovers have been on their travels, the fans have followed.

And that's something that has been crucial to the side this term, according to Mulgrew.

“It’s been an enjoyable end to the season. Winning at Doncaster, it was a great feeling and a real relief," he said when looking back on that terrific night in Yorkshire.

“The atmosphere against Oxford on the last day of the season was incredible and definitely the best since I’ve been here at Rovers. Overall it was a really enjoyable day. The main aim was promotion and that’s what we’re delighted to have achieved.
“There have been games where our fans have dragged us through, particularly away from home where at times we’ve had 3,000 or 4,000 there getting behind us. Hopefully they can continue to back us next season both on the road and at Ewood Park."
