Manager Grant McCann has praised Rovers supporters after their incredible backing of the team this season.

With close to 2,000 fans spurring the players on at Oakwell on Saturday, McCann felt the fans had really inspired his players.

He said: "They were the best I've seen since I've been at this football club, they were non-stop, and they drove the boys out there.

"They have been tremendous since Cliff Byrne and I came in, they get behind us, are patient when they need to be and really back us. I cannot ask for more, and it's just a shame we couldn't find the winner on Saturday to reward them.

"We're looking to build that momentum now, we've played against some very good teams in this league so far, and I've said it early on that there's nothing to fear in this league, and I think we've shown here we are one of the best in this division in my opinion."

Niall Mason, who deputised at centre-back for the game, also praised the fans in his post-match press duties.

He said: "They were magnificent again, but we come to expect that from them no matter where we are.

"This game is a short trip, but when we went to Plymouth earlier in the season there was a tremendous following there as well - the lads all really appreciate the backing."
