Commenting on the support Chairman John Fry thanked supporters: "I'd like to thank all our supporters who have already signed up for their support. I would now urge those that haven't to do so as soon as possible.
"This petition could make all the difference to Councillors when they see the groundswell of opinion in favour of the development.
"Despite dropping two points last night the club is beginning to show it is a SkyBet Championship club and the manner of our performance proves it but we must move forward in the club's development. The Food Store development will help to do that.
"So please support the club and sign our petition NOW."
