Why Huddersfield Town fans must crank up the volume against Burnley on Saturday

Visitors expected to bring well over 3,000 supporters

Joel Lynch was in Town's victorious line-up the last time Burnley visited the stadium

Huddersfield Town fans will need to crank up the volume when Burnley visit the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

Town will not have their usual choir in the ‘away end’ because the Turf Moor club – leaders of the Championship – will take the whole of the Chadwick Lawrence Stand.

Burnley have already sold over 2,700 tickets for the trans-Pennine derby and their travelling army are sure to be in great voice.

By the time of the match, they are expected to have sold well over 3,000 tickets, so Town’s home following will have to up the decibels from the other three sides of the stadium.

When Burnley last visited Huddersfield in November 2013, a crowd of 17,390 witnessed Town win 2-1 with goals from Oliver Norwood and James Vaughan (penalty).

Danny Ings pulled a goal back for Burnley near the end and they had Mike Duff sent off in the final minute.

Only Tommy Smith, Joel Lynch and Jonathan Hogg of Town’s current squad started that match, while Duane Holmes and Sean Scannell were among the substitutes.
