ATHLETIC are delighted with the continued response from supporters to get Boundary Park rocking.

The first experiment – which invited fans to switch to the Zen Office Chaddy End against Crawley - was successful and noise levels rose further when Brentford arrived on Saturday and supporters packed much of the Verlin Stand.

Chief executive Neil Joy described it as “the best atmosphere he could remember” at a league game.

Athletic are keen to produce another plan to help fire up fans for home game against Coventry on April 21.

By the time that match comes around, much more of the new North Stand will be up, another source of satisfaction for fans and board members alike.

“It is all very positive and the feedback has been good,” said Joy. “A lot of hard work has gone into preparing the ground and fans can now see that the stand is taking shape.”

Manager Lee Johnson was also delighted at the noise levels at Boundary Park: “We’re on a good run and everyone is with us,” said the manager. “It helped us and I thank the supporters for that. It’s a constant drone and it pushes the boys on. They appreciate it as much as I do and have put in some decent displays of late.”
