Charlie Mulgrew admits he has a special bond with the Rovers supporters and that their backing from the stands doesn't go unnoticed by the team.
Mulgrew has provided the fans with some memorable moments during his time at the club - netting the winners against Newcastle in his first season, as well as the promotion clincher at Doncaster last term.
The skipper says that the support Rovers receive is greatly appreciated by the players, who will continue to give their all to send the fans home happy.
"The fans have been great since the minute I came here and I'm thankful for that," said the 32-year-old, who this week committed his future to the club.
"The support doesn't go unnoticed. The lads are thankful to have them and we just try to do the best we can for them.
"The club has perhaps been a bit up and down recently and we hope that we can steady things up and push forward.
"We'll be doing everything we can every day to do that. It's a great changing room to have and we're fighting for the fans all the time."
Rovers will be backed by over 5,000 fans for next weekend's trip to Preston and Mulgrew is looking forward to the local derby at Deepdale.
"All the games are important, but the local ones are good derbies and we look forward to them," he added.
"We played there a couple of years ago and it was brilliant.
"The Rovers fans travel well and we'll be glad to have them."
