Robins hopeful of Railway repeat

Last updated : 24 January 2008 By Bigrich.....
The club made full use of the 2300 capacity Railway End last Saturday by letting Millers fans have around 2/3rds of the stand, boss Mark Robins welcomed the move and hope's it can be done again in the Millers quest for promotion.

"It was absolutely brilliant having our own supporters in the Railway End because it made a difference to the atmosphere, It was a lot more vocal and it was an idea that really worked. It needs a lot of co-operation from a lot of people and the police went along with it." he said.

"I would most certainly like to see it again and I'm certain the players would too. Of course, I realise that the amount of away support has a bearing on the decision. Wycombe were only bringing less than 300 and so the stand could be segregated and our fans accommodated quite successfully and safely as well."

"Obviously, it won't be possible when there is a big away support. It wouldn't be possible for the Chesterfield game, for example. However, where it might be possible, we should look into it and see if we can repeat this. I think the fans would like it and I see no reason why we shouldn't give them what they want, really if and when we can."

The club have to have several restrictions on the use of the stand and all home fans in that end have to be in there 10 minutes before kick off as fans entering the stand have to go in front of the players tunnel.

After the bumper crowd on Saturday, the club are doing a special deal on tickets for the game against Hereford on the 2nd Feb.

Adult tickets can be bought for just £15 by a current season ticket holder (max 2 per ticket!), concessions £5 and under 12's just a QUID!
