Gordon Greer says the Albion fans made a difference in Saturday's play-offs clinching win at Nottingham Forest

Albion captain Gordon Greer has urged the Amex faithful to replicate against Derby in the play-offs the atmosphere created by the away fans at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Greer experienced for himself the difference the supporters can make in the last-gasp 2-1 win at the City Ground, then saw Crystal Palace galvanised to come from 3-0 down in Monday's 3-3 draw with title-chasing Liverpool in the Premier League at Selhurst Park.

Now Greer is hoping for the same sort of backing in tomorrow night's first leg at home to Derby.

He told The Argus: "I watched the (Palace) game. Their supporters have had a lot of credit this year for the way they have conducted themselves and on Saturday away at Forest the support we got was unbelievable.

"You could hear them throughout the whole game and when we scored that second goal the players and fans were delighted. We were really delighted we managed to do it for them as well.

"People talk about the 12th man and the supporters. It's really important they get behind the team and give us support."

Tickets are now on general sale for the Amex leg.

Slight understatement that. I spent £80 on beer celebrating afterwards.

It is what some supporters do not seem to understand - praise not criticism is what spurs players on. So many people at the Amex just sit there and do not even clap when we have a great period of play. Throw off your reservation and sing if you can, if not at least clap and make a noise, however you do it!

This kind of pressure can be counter productive.

We have seen it time and time again at the Amex, disappointment after diappointment, lets go in as underdogs and keep our mouths shut.

That way we might just get a result.

We will be shouting but we need to be spurred on also. Good attacking football please; lets have some runs at defenders especially on the wings, cut inside and have a shot or go round the outside and cross the ball in. Put 20 crosses in and at least 2 should end up in the back of the net.
Ward was a fine example; covered lots of ground against forest and attacked their defenders, more of the same please.

The Amex on a boisterous day is one of the most fantastic stadium experiences I have felt.
Those god awful clappers last year killed any chance of the good feeling amongst fans connecting to the players last year, so hopefully the marketing team will put the players first this time and learn from last times pain.
All you need is 27-28000 voices. Simple.

Easy to see why you dropped it, by all accounts they are knocking the ball around quite nicely.

And the 3-3 draw can be fully appreciated by anyone who has a friend that call themselves a Liverpool fan, LOL
