DRFC Rovers praise fans

Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll was quick to praise the Rovers fans after they turned out in numbers to support the club on Saturday.

With the current financial climate, some fans have been finding it hard to find the cash to follow the club but some excellent offers from the club allowed fans to watch Saturday`s game for just £10.

Over 13,000 Rovers fans turned out and got behind the side in the clash against third placed Swansea City.

Rovers boss O`Driscoll and his players welcomed the excellent support, speaking on the official site, O`Driscoll said, "The atmosphere today gave everyone a lift.
When supporters get behind the team, especially at home, it drives the players on."

They had plenty to cheer about for most of the game as Rovers led 1-0 thanks to another James Hayter goal after just sixteen minutes..

Swansea equalised in the second minute of stoppage time but the fans were treated to an excellent game of football, between two of the best footballing sides in the division.

Two of the players were also quick to praise the support, speaking on the official website, midfielder Mark Wilson said, "It was a great atmosphere to play in today."

Defender Sam Hird said, "When fans turn out like today it makes a massive difference."


Rovers also did the offer in the previous home game against Millwall but didn`t market the game very well with just over 10,000 fans turning out.

The club learnt a lesson from the Millwall game and after a much better marketing campaign, the fans turned out in numbers.

For the first time since moving to the Keepmoat, part of the North Stand, which is usually allocated to away fans only, had to be cordoned off to allow more Rovers fans in.

Cash is usually much tighter in the run up to Christmas and Rovers are doing another deal for the next home game against South Yorkshire rival Barnsley. Ticket prices have been reduced by £5 for the clash at the Keepmoat on December 4th.

Tickets are expensive around the country now and we can thank the players agents for this who continue to screw every last penny out of clubs for players. Something needs to be done to guarantee the long term future of fans following football. It amazes me how fans can afford to do every game. I spent over £2000 last season following football and I only went to just over 20 games!

The fans that aren't regulars need to keep coming back. We have a great side and a great chairman who along with his board keeping dipping into their pockets. If crowds drop back under the 10,000 mark I can see a few players having to be sold. They will not keep stumping up the £3 million plus losses the club make every year. We have a great chance this season of at least reaching the play offs, the ground should be like that every week.
