Town Chairman issues statement to supporters

- Chairman Dean Hoyle issues statement to Town fans
- Supporters must stay off the pitch after Sunday's game
- Hoyle adamant condition of JSS pitch is paramount to Play-Off bid

Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle has today insisted supporters must stay off the John Smith’s Stadium pitch after Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship game against Cardiff City.

Speaking ahead of jumping on his bicycle to begin the journey back from Dortmund as one of the 120 Pedal for Pounds 8 cyclists, Dean urged Town fans to play their part in an important end to the season by staying in the stands at the final whistle.

“Make no mistake; this is the most important end of season period that Huddersfield Town has faced in the last 45 years. We need everyone to play their part – and that includes supporters this weekend.

“There are always sanctions hanging over clubs if fans encroach onto the pitch, and I’m sure no Huddersfield Town fan wants the Club to get fined.

“However, the more important factor here is preserving the condition of the pitch. As everyone is aware, we worked very hard and invested a significant amount of money to improve the pitch since it became worn in March because it is so vital to the way in which David Wagner’s team plays its football. As such, we must do everything we can to protect it ahead of the Play-Off semi-final.

“I honestly believe you could be handing our opponent – whoever that will be – an advantage by coming onto the pitch this weekend. Please keep that at the centre of your mind.”
