GIANTS chairman Ken Davy has listened to the fans and switched this Sunday's home Super League clash against Castleford Tigers from 5.30 to the traditional 3pm start.
It will be music to the ears of those Huddersfield fans who have been opposed to the new time from the start, and it will also help soften the blow of yesterday's 42-10 home defeat at the hands of leaders Leeds Rhinos.
Unfortunately, that defeat - the Giants' eighth in 10 games - was expected, and means coach Jon Sharp's side have slipped out of the top six for the first time this year.
But the decision by Davy to alter the kick-off time will have taken many by surprise.
And he is now obviously hoping the move is followed by an increased crowd for the visit of the Tigers.
"We are constantly striving to increase our attendances and felt this was a great chance to revert to 3pm," he said.
"We've kicked off at 5.30 in the summer for almost two seasons now and haven't achieved the numbers we would have liked.
"But, more importantly, a recent fans' survey and consistent messages to the club indicate strongly that supporters believe a 3pm start will attract the stay-away fans and be the best move all round.
"So for the Castleford game at 3pm, my message for these supporters not regularly attending would be that we've listened and given you the opportunity to attend a really attractive game at the time you want.
"And we'll naturally be hoping for a much enhanced attendance."
Yesterday's defeat means Wakefield are now up to sixth after a 39-18 home win over bottom club Castleford.
The Giants are also just one point ahead of Warrington in eighth.
