UPBEAT Giants chairman Ken Davy today launched his club's final push for Challenge Cup glory.
Although head coach Jon Sharp and his players are focusing solely on Friday's Super League clash at Leeds Rhinos (8.00), Mr Davy has begun the countdown to the Giants v St Helens semi-final clash at Warrington on Sunday week.
A key part of the promotion push is to guarantee the club's remaining semi-final tickets are snapped up in the next few days.
Over 3,000 have already been sold, but Mr Davy is anxious the full allocation of 4,500 is taken up to give his Huddersfield team an extra lift in the club's biggest game since their last semi-final appearance in 1971.
"The initial demand for tickets was very encouraging indeed and it's now a case of making sure those that remain are sold," said Mr Davy.
"We know we are going into the tie against St Helens as underdogs, but I do believe we have a genuine chance of causing an upset.
"Under coach Jon Sharp, the team is performing exceptionally well. It's just over a week since we beat Wigan very impressively and of course we also ran Bradford Bulls close at the McAlpine.
"But we know it will be a tough ask, and it's in games like this that the support from the stands can count for so much.
"Sunday, April 25 is our club's biggest day for 33 years and we want as many people from this area as possible to do what they can to cheer us on to what we hope will result in a first Challenge Cup final appearance for over half a century.
"So I really would urge as many of the town's sporting community to get themselves to Warrington for this big day to cheer on the famous claret and gold.
"It's possible that this extra support could make all the difference in the world and help us to make our dream become a reality."
Sharp's plans for Friday have been boosted after Darren Fleary and Ben Roarty were cleared to play after being placed on report for alleged late challenges over Easter.
He is also lifted by the return after injury of Julian Bailey (leg) and Mick Slicker (foot).
The Rugby Football League, meanwhile, are to take no action against St Helens over their controversial team selection.
Saints were thrashed 54-8 by Bradford Bulls on Easter Monday when they fielded an under-strength side at Odsal.
St Helens coach Ian Millward left out 11 players from the side which drew 21-21 with Wigan on Good Friday, with one eye clearly on their Cup tie against the Giants.
Millward insisted all his absentees were injured and the RFL have accepted the club were able to field only the players they did.
But Millward still has disciplinary matters on his mind tonight, with three of his players appearing in front of the disciplinary panel.
Paul Sculthorpe and Dom Feaunati, along with Wigan's Andy Farrell, have been called up to explain their actions during a brawl in Friday's clash, while Jon Wilkin appears after his sending off against the Bulls.
