Fill the FM Lower tier against Bolton.
Once again, Town fans have the opportunity to get behind the goal of the Fantastic Media Lower stand against Bolton this Saturday at the John Smiths.
The initial experiment was trialled against Barnsley in the 5–0 victory last month – and it proved to be a great occasion where supporters backed the team and helped to create a fantastic atmosphere, which is something everyone associated with Huddersfield Town Football Club are keen to improve on.
Let’s hope there are even more cheering the lads on from the ‘New Cowshed’ when Yorkshire takes on Lancashire – it should be a cracker!

A well-deserved point was gained by the Terriers away to play-off chasing Reading at the Madjeski Stadium.
The boy from Bermuda – Nahki Wells – scored for Town in the fourth minute, making it his second goal in a week, and he also hit the woodwork in a match which Town dominated and were unlucky not to win.
Two minutes after Wells’ goal, however, Reading won a contentious penalty when Jobi McAnuff was adjudged to have been fouled in the box, and ex-Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak stepped up to score from the spot.
The performance shown by Mark Robins’ men was a huge improvement on recent games and one the travelling faithful appreciated.
Reading hadn’t won in their previous five home matches before going into this match and as it progressed it became more evident that Town would deny them again.
The home side struggled at times to cope with the Terriers threat but the Royals themselves were always likely to pose some problems for Town’s rearguard.
Adam Hammill and Danny Ward both went close for Town as did Wells once again, and it was Reading’s McCarthy who was the busiest of the two keepers.
With 10 minutes of the match remaining, Hammill won a Town corner which he took himself, whipping the ball across and finding the head of Murray Wallace, who had his attempt cleared off the line.
All in all, a highly encouraging display going in to this Saturday’s home match against Bolton Wanderers.
Once again Town fans, the message from HTSA is clear... get behind the lads and roar them across the line and on to victory!
At the Herbert Chapman Evening, an enthusiastic audience were treated to a superb night of insights into Town’s legendary manager, Herbert Chapman, when Patrick Barclay and Herbert’s nephew, Ken, visited PPG Canalside.
The evening passed only too quickly and gave us a brilliant picture of Herbert Chapman the man as well as the manager, not only of Town and Arsenal but also the undefeated manager of England, duly accomplished by drawing with Italy (when under instructions not to defeat a Mussolini-led national side) before beating a Swiss team 4-0.
This was a unique occasion but anyone unable to attend does have the chance of finding out what they missed by obtaining a copy of Patrick Barclay’s book, The Life and Times of Herbert Chapman, available from the club shop.
