Matt Kilgallon has praised the impact of the Blackburn fans in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Rotherham.

Rovers have endured another mixed season on the field but their loyal supporters have stuck by them and were vibrant throughout the clash at the New York Stadium.

Shane Duffy’s sixth-minute header was enough for the Lancashire outfit to take the points on their trip across the Pennines and end a run of six games without a victory.

Saturday sees them conclude their season at home to Reading, a fixture which will be Paul Lambert’s last in the dugout having recently revealed he will leave the club after just seven months in charge.

Lambert’s men are currently 2.40 to take the victory, with the draw 3.20 and the Royals, who sit one place below them in the table in 16th, priced at 2.88.

Defender Kilgallon admits his side’s supporters were crucial at Rotherham and has urged his team-mates to repay their faith by producing another strong showing in their final outing of the campaign.

“The fans were unbelievable, they were brilliant,” he told Rovers PlayerHD.

“They packed it out behind the goal and you could hear them throughout, they were behind us cheering us on, it was enjoyable.

“I think that made us play as well, we were a lot better and we defended a lot better with no sloppy goals.

“We’ve one game to go and it is a good day the last game of the season so it would be nice if we could get another three points.”
