Speaking to the clubs official website Ali said that the team wanted to make sure that the fans got some reward for their 'fantastic' effort.
Ali said: 'The fans were fantastic, and when we left the hotel on our way to the Reebok Stadium we saw all the fans making the walk from the DW Stadium for Emma Hoolin.
'It was special and we wanted to give them something back after that effort and for the tremendous support they gave us throughout the game.'
