170914 DC Fans Praise

Manager Danny Cowley has paid tribute to the City supporters, both at home and on the road, as he prepares for Saturday's local derby against Mansfield Town.

Writing in his programme notes ahead of the game against the Stags at Sincil Bank Stadium, Cowley was full of praise for the City fans who over the past couple of weeks have once again turned out in force, whatever the weather.

"The support in the Luton Town home match and both our away games has been outstanding," writes Cowley.

"We now sit on top of the attendance table in this division and that is something that I think we should all be immensely proud of.

"As for the 300 plus fans that supported us at Forest Green in the open terracing in the most horrendous conditions imaginable, simply thank you. You would have left the game soaking wet and no doubt freezing cold on the outside but I am sure, like me, you would have had a really warm feeling inside off the back of the players’ efforts."

As for Saturday's game and Cowley is urging all fans to soley concentrate on supporting the boys in red and white.

"All I ask of you... is to support us," he adds. "Don’t get caught up with the opposition, direct all of your focus and energy towards driving our intensity."
