The winner of the Hargreaves Memorial Trophy, decided by Examiner readers, will be revealed on Sunday.
But the captain says in his view, 18-goal frontman Wells just has the edge.
“It’s a tough one to call,” said Hudson, who has just signed a new three-year contract which includes a transition to coaching.
“But I would go for Nahki because he has worked so hard and scored so many goals for us.
“He has played in most of the matches, and he has shown real character as well as quality.”
The first winner, back in 1975, was Terry Dolan.
