    "A true supporter is a person who will get behind us in this difficult time," Windo told BBC Hereford and Worcester.

    "It's harder to support a side when they are not doing so well.

    "We are not shying away from the fact we want to be higher in the league and results haven't gone as well as we wanted them to.

    "From my playing days, I know it makes a big difference. I appreciate the fact they are struggling with frustration as we all are.

    "But we'll carry on working hard to come out the other side and give them something to cheer about as we did last season."

    "For me, it's about those who support a side through thick and thin."
