Town skipper comments on £5 tickets for Saturday

Mark Hudson has praised Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle’s £5 pre-purchase ticket offer for Saturday’s final home league game of the season against Blackburn Rovers.

Town fans will pay just £5 in all home areas if they buy their ticket for Saturday’s game before the midnight on Friday deadline either online (click HERE), in person at the Ticket Office or over the phone (01484 484123). 

“It’s a great offer for the fans, because it lets us give them something back for their support throughout the year. They’ve been great and it would be superb to have a big following for the last home game. 

“The fans have stuck with us when we’ve had dips in the year, which is great. I’m really pleased the Chairman has opened up the offer. Hopefully the sun will be out again and it’ll be a good game where we finish with a win.”

Saturday’s game will be a real test for Hudson and co, as his former Cardiff teammate Rudy Gestede and ex-Town forward Jordan Rhodes come to the John Smith’s Stadium.

Mark continued: “I know both fairly well; they both score goals on a regular basis. However, we played against another team last weekend that does the same in Derby and we got four ourselves against a good defence.

“If we play like that again – and stop their key men – and we will give ourselves a good chance. We got a good point at Ewood Park earlier in the season, but we remember how tough that was. We’re under no illusions – Saturday will be a tough game.”

Saturday’s home finale will be the penultimate game of Hudson’s first season as Town Captain – an experience he has thoroughly relished.

“I’ve enjoyed it! I’m particularly glad we’re finishing on a high. 

“We didn’t want to go out with a whimper. With eight games to go, we set ourselves a target of staying unbeaten and so far we’ve done it. We’ve played well in recent games and now we want to finish strongly. It’s important we go into the summer knowing we’ve given it our all. 

“We’ve had some ups and downs in the season, which you will get in the Championship. We could have possibly gained some more points by seeing games out better, particularly midway through the season, but we’re a young group and we’re still learning our way. 

“The experiences of this season will help us gel and ensure we can really crack on next year. The Championship is tough, but it only gets tougher every year. When we have a difficult time next year, we should be able to dig out a few more points because of what we’ve learned. That could put us in a really strong position.”
