GIANTS officials are looking for home support to give their side an extra lift in Sunday's Powergen Challenge Cup clash against top French club Pia at the McAlpine Stadium (3.00).
The Super League club are adopting the highly successful `Quid a Kid' policy this weekend in a bid to boost the crowd.
Admission prices have also been reduced to £14 for adults and £9 concessions for a tie that is all pay.
But Sunday's match is still expected to attract the lowest McAlpine crowd of the entire season, particularly as the Pia travelling party of coaches, players, officials and fans is fewer than 40.
Giants head coach Jon Sharp, however, is hoping the supporters come out in force and back his squad as strongly as they did during last Sunday's opening Super League win over Castleford.
"It's not every day that we get the chance to test ourselves against the French, and in that sense Sunday is a very special occasion," said Sharp.
"The club are making a big effort to try and attract extra fans on Sunday, and we're all hoping it pays off.
"I thought the atmosphere during the Castleford game was as good as I've known it at the McAlpine, and I know it gave the boys a big lift.
"So, I'm obviously looking forward to continued support throughout the season, starting against Pia this weekend.
"One of our aims as a team is to try and guarantee the fans have something to sing and shout about this year.
"So I would urge everyone to fetch a friend to watch the Giants, because I firmly believe they would be doing them a favour."
The fact many are predicting the tie could be one-sided may deter some supporters from watching the contest.
But Sharp is convinced the French shouldn't be written off.
"This side isn't as bad as some are trying to make out," said Sharp.
"They deserve our full respect, that's why I'm picking my strongest possible side.
"What's an important fact to remember is that Pia are now well into their League season.
"They are already battle hardened and have had time to gel together as a side, which is obviously something we haven't had time to do.
"That in itself makes Pia a dangerous opponent, and we must be fully aware of that.
"They will come here knowing they have nothing to lose and will relish facing a Super League side.
"We must remain on guard from start to finish."
Sharp has named the same 17 that were on duty in last weekend's 26-22 triumph over the Tigers.
The only change to the starting line-up is at prop where Mick Slicker takes over from Ben Roarty, who is named on the bench.
"I don't see the point of chopping and changing at this stage, I want to get some rhythm in the side," he added.
