Manager Paul Dickov told Rovers Player that the three points gained against local rivals Sheffield Wednesday were for the fans.

Dickov praised the support shown by the supporters on the road and dedicated the win to them.

“I’m delighted for the fans,” he said.

“Recently they have been away to Wigan with us, the debacle down at Charlton and travelled down to Watford andhave seen performances but not necessarily seen the points on board.

“They turned out in numbers again and were fantastic so these three points are for them.”

Paul went on to speak about the game and in particular about the chance which brought about Rovers’ goal.

“I was really disappointed with the first half performance; we didn’t look to pass the ball and when we did we looked a little bit edgy and nervy and we kept giving it back to them [Sheffield Wednesday].

“There were a few choice words said at half time and we changed the system around a little bit. 

“As much as we are saying to the players that it not all about systems and that we have to keep the ball better, I’ll take it on the chin that the system we started with didn’t work.

“We did change it around at half time and we were a lot better with and without the ball. We were harder to break down and when we got the ball we moved it about with a lot more purpose and got the goal and possibly could have got more. 

“We’ve got to give them [Sheffield Wednesday] credit; they came out on the front foot - it was a big game for them, a derby game with a big crowd.”
