Star winger wants 'spirit of Millwall' to help Rovers to safety.
Evergreen winger James Coppinger has called on Rovers fans to make the difference when the team play their final home game of the season on Saturday against Reading (3pm).
Speaking in the aftermath of his 404th Rovers appearance – a battling display against relegation rivals Millwall – Copps said, “This result will help and the nature of the result, the fact that we had to stick together and play for each other and work hard for each other, sometimes you need something like that to kick you on and everybody knows the magnitude of the game on Saturday and everybody will be up for it and we’ll be looking forward to it.”
The efforts of the many hundreds who travelled in trying circumstances to London to roar Rovers on against the Lions were duly noted by Coppinger, who called for the same, if not more, from the Red Army.
“It was superb. Throughout the second half you could hear them and you try not to take too much notice during the game, but you could hear them and their constant singing that we’re staying up and it means a lot and they’ve been fantastic all season and hopefully we can have a big crowd there on Saturday and get over the line.”
