THE streets were deserted today as thousands of Huddersfield Town fans invaded Cardiff.
The flood of blue and white began to pour out yesterday as supporters packed coaches and trains bound for South Wales.
Many of the travelling fans decided to turn the Division Three play-off final into a mini-break and stayed in Cardiff last night.
Huddersfield Town's own executive coaches set off on Sunday morning.
Corporate sales manager Tracy Nelson said: "This special package sold out almost straight away. It included travel, accommodation and, of course, we are all going to the match.
"I think we just want to get started now because we are a bit nervous about the game."
But there was no sign of nerves for the majority of fans who were super confident Town were going up.
John and Diane Collinson, of Thongsbridge, set off yesterday so they could relax and soak up as much of the big match atmosphere as possible.
John said: "This time last year we were all worried for the future of the club and now they are on the up.
"The man to thank for all this is Ken Davy he saved this club and we would not be here now if it was not for him."
Diane said: "I think Town will win and Danny Schofield will grab us a goal."
Nick Rawcliffe and his son Keefer, 12, of Lindley, think the Terriers have nothing to fear as long as they play better than they did against Mansfield on May 1.
Nick said: "Getting beat at home was a heart-breaker but we certainly owe them one now. I think the game will be won in the midfield. This will be a great day out - as long as we win!"
