Iron boss Mark Robins feels that the introduction of the 12th Man scheme this season will benefit his side throughout the upcoming campaign.

The number of fans that have signed up to the scheme is approaching 2,000 and Robins says that the initiative is sure to have a major impact on his players as they aim to have a successful 2015/16.

"The 12th Man initiative has been a really good one, we've already sold around 900 tickets for Burton as of Friday," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"The atmosphere at the team photograph (when the 12th Man members were present) was tremendous and hopefully that's a sign of things to come."

Robins says that the home support will be invaluable and will only benefit the side in the long run.

"This will be a tough place to come and we're going to try and make it the proverbial fortress," he said.

"We need to get that 12th Man singing and really vocal.

"We will gather in number as the season progresses, if not before.

"Regardless of how many season tickets that we sell, the supporters will back us 100% I'm sure of that."

"We're looking at a different type of game this year and we're looking for a bit more patience with the ball, but we want to try and excite them," he explained.

"There's going to be ups and down during the season, but we've got to embrace that and we will do."
