Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer gave a glowing tribute to the club's fans for the support they gave both him and his players during yesterday's stalemate at Wycombe Wanderers.

VERDICT: Job well done for Blackpool in season opener

There were 459 Blackpool fans who made the long trip to Adams Park to see the Seasiders begin the new season with a 0-0 draw.

The Pool boss was greeted by a chorus of "Gary Bowyer's tangerine army" when he went over to applaud the away supporters before kick-off.

When asked how much the support means to him, Bowyer said: “Of course it means a lot.

“Before the game they were very good and they always have been, they’ve always been supportive of both myself and the team.
