NEW signing Anthony Gerrard hopes to get a call against his old club Cardiff City tonight and vowed: "The only point I’ve got to prove is to myself and to Huddersfield Town."
The 26-year-old central defender could face Welsh international striker Craig Bellamy for the first time since last season’s Carling Cup final at Wembley in the Championship opener at the City of Cardiff Stadium (7.45).
Gerrard feels he didn’t get a fair crack of the whip under Malky Mackay, prompting his £350,000 arrival in Simon Grayson’s squad, and he’s keen to focus solely on helping get Town off to a solid start to the league season in front of the Sky TV cameras.
"I’m looking forward to it and my allegiance now is to a different club – I’m a Huddersfield Town player and I’ll be doing my utmost to get the win," said Gerrard.
"I’d been used to playing 40-odd games a season and then to drop to the 27 I had last season – and not being included in squads – was a bitter pill to swallow and I knew I needed a change.
