STRIKER Marcus Tudgay hailed the Sky Blues away support at Burton after over 1,800 fans helped cheer Tony Mowbray’s side on to a hard-fought 2-1 victory at the Pirelli Stadium.
The Sky Blue Army were out in full force on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Burton and watched on with joy as goals in either half from Tudgay and Romain Vincelot cancelled out Aaron Martin’s first half own goal.
A fourth win of the season pushes the Sky Blues up to second in the table but Tudgay is urging everyone at the club to keep their feet firmly on the ground.
“We all work hard amongst ourselves and we have a young team that want to learn and want to win,” said Tudgay. “But the fans were important on Sunday, I’m not just saying that.
“There were a lot of changes, I’ve come in, people are away on international duty and it unsettles the team, but they got behind us.
“It made a real difference late on and the performance was brilliant for them, they sang their hearts out with a massive following and long may it continue.”
“It’s nice for the fans to wake up on Monday morning to read we’re second in the league but as quick as you get up to second you can go down to 22nd.
“You’ve got to stay grounded, not get arrogant, but understand why we got there and the hardest thing is to carry that on and keep the points ticking over.
“Sunday was a really tough game, they’re not up near the top for no reason so we can be pleased with the three points.”
