KEN DAVY is confident his £1m-plus investment in Town will be rewarded with glorious promotion on Saturday.
Just nine months after rescuing the club from financial ruin, Mr Davy will join 1,700 fans at Cheltenham and up to 7,000 more watching big-screen coverage at the McAlpine in cheering Town towards the victory which would take them up.
Success would cap a remarkable season of revival under Peter Jackson and increase Town's earning power in a derby-ladened Second Division next season.
"Last August, I think anyone would have settled for being play-off challengers, let alone confirmed in the play-offs and with a chance to clinch automatic promotion in our final game," said owner Mr Davy.
"That is our goal, we know exactly what we have to do at Whaddon Road and I'm sure everyone will be up for it on Saturday."
Town have confirmed the John Smith's Kilner Bank will be open from 1.30pm for a live broadcast of the big match provided by Yorkshire Television and with commentary from the BBC Radio Leeds team.
It's pay at the turnstiles on a first come first served basis for the 7,000 seats - parking is free - and prices are £10 for adults and £5 for Under 16s, Over 60s and wheelchair fans and helpers.
Bars and snack bars will be open, although fans will not be allowed to drink alcohol in their seats while watching the 30 square metres screen.
It's a first for Town and the stadium and, with season-ticket prices due to be released, marks further progress.
"An enormous amount of work has gone on behind the scenes all season and the support we have received for all our various initiatives has been a tremendous aspect of the campaign," added Mr Davy.
"Support has been increasing all the way through and last Saturday's attendance against Mansfield - the club's biggest for three years - was absolutely outstanding.
"Promotion now would be tremendous for the town, for the club and for those fans, and I've no doubt that Peter Jackson, Terry Yorath and the players have the ability to deliver."
Town's chief executive Andrew Watson believes there will be a "fantastic atmosphere" at the McAlpine.
"We would ask fans to come early because the best seats will obviously go first and none are reserved," he said.
"It would not surprise me if there was a bigger attendance at the McAlpine than at the game itself and, obviously, we are hoping it will become a massive promotion party.
"Had we known earlier, we could possibly have got a bigger screen, but this is a great option for all those fans who couldn't get match tickets and the atmosphere will be electric."
Only injured duo Ian Gray and Nathan Clarke, plus suspended Efe Sodje and Danny Schofield, missed today's training session at Stothes Hall.
Jackson and coach Terry Yorath are guests of the Patrons Association tonight (8.00) in the main banqueting suite.
