Copps hails fans

16 January 2017

James Coppinger paid tribute to Rovers’ fans after the victory over Barnet.

The 3-1 success at The Hive – where Coppinger netted either side of John Marquis’ strike – was witnessed by 826 travelling fans.

The Rovers captain said: “They were superb, and they have been all season – home and away.

“It is important to give the fans something to shout about after being relegated, and everyone has done that this season. Our home form has been unbeaten all season, and away from home we have given the fans something to shout about.”

Rovers had to come from behind to claim the three points, and Coppinger praised the character of his team-mates to quickly bounce back.

He added: “This team doesn’t know when it’s beat, and credit to the lads with the way they go about things on and off the pitch.

“It’s momentum. When you are top of the league and  playing with confidence, and a lot of quality, nobody loses their heads if we go 1-0 down. To get back in the game so early helped, and we grew in confidence from there.”
