Coventry City defender Michael Rose has sent a heartfelt message to supporters.
The Sky Blues battled against the odds to win promotion to the Championship this season, playing home games at Birmingham City’s St Andrew’s.
Coventry may have played their home games around 30 minutes from the Ricoh Arena, but they still managed an average attendance of 6,677 across league games.
That says a lot about Sky Blues fans, or at least that’s according to Rose, who thanked supporters on the Sky Blues Extra Podcast.

“I would say thanks for the support, really,” he said. “It doesn’t go under-appreciated from any of the boys, knowing they need to travel every single week, home and away, we appreciate it so much.
“We know how difficult that can be with money and that sort of thing, especially when your team are not playing in the city where you are from.
“So, we buzz off them. Especially away from home, they are singing all game no matter what is going on.
“They are brilliant to be honest. At home, we had 6,000 or 7,000 coming to Birmingham every week.
“To us, that was brilliant, just knowing that we had that support travelling away to our home games.”
