ANTHONY PILKINGTON believes Huddersfield Town are better equipped than ever to win promotion from League I.
The former Galpharm favourite who is now at Norwich took advantage of the Premier League break to watch Lee Clark’s side go third with Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Stevenage.
Lee Novak netted a 76th-minute winner before Stevenage missed an 88th-minute penalty and Pilkington said: “It was great to see the lads – and great to see them win.
“Huddersfield Town means a huge amount to me, and I’d love to see the club go up for the chairman, the manager and the supporters.
“I had a great relationship with the fans, and the support base here would certainly sustain Championship football.
“Dean Hoyle’s backing of the club is brilliant and I still speak to the gaffer (Lee Clark) on a regular basis.
“I think the squad he has put together is his strongest yet with some really good players and competition in all the positions.
“The training ground at Canalside is coming along really well, and everything is in place for Town to make that step up.”
The 23-year-old winger, whose July move to Carrow Road could reportedly net Town an eventual £3m, has made six appearances for the Canaries.
“I’ve wanted to play in the Premier League since I was a boy and I’m really enjoying the challenge,” he added.
“Hopefully I can remain at this level for a long time because it’s a great place to be playing football.”
