Huddersfield Town will be backed by more than 2,000 supporters at Bolton Wanderers – and boss David Wagner is keen to give them something to cheer.
The head coach is more than happy that Town have sold out their 2,200 ticket allocation for the Macron Stadium meeting , when they will aim for a festive return of seven points from three games after the 3-1 home win over Preston North End and 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers.
“I am pleased we have sold so many tickets,” said Wagner. “It is another incentive for myself and the squad to do the best we can.
“The feedback is that the fans are happy with what they are getting, but of course they will be happier if we can supply three points.
“We have to keep going and show our full-throttle football and identity once again.
“We have to make it hard for Bolton to play against us.”
Wagner said the fact Bolton earned a 1-0 derby win over Blackburn Rovers against a background of major financial problems at the club shows the character in Neil Lennon’s squad.
“For us it is a warning,” he added.
“They beat Blackburn with a clean sheet and in a difficult situation for the players.
“They are bottom of the table, but they have won twice and drawn 11 times, which means that in 13 games they have been better or the same quality as the opposition.”
