Scott Loach praised the superb backing of the Blue Army after Town were knocked out of the FA Cup by Aston Villa.
Almost 3,000 Town fans were at Villa Park to support their side and saw an own goal from Eric Lichaj fire Blues in front, before second-half strikes from Darren Bent and Andreas Wiemann saw the Premier League team progress.
“I thought both sets of fans were great but the Town fans really made some noise and it was a pleasure to play in front of them,” Scott told the Club website.
“I know we could have probably brought more fans but the ones inside the stadium made some real noise today and stuck with us right until the end.
“In fairness to Villa it’s two quality strikes that have beaten us but I think we can hold our heads high. Obviously we play to win every game and we’re disappointed to lose but I think we can hold our highs high today in the knowing that we gave it a real good go.”
