Huddersfield Town and West Ham United are singing from the same hymnsheet over the value of home advantage in the Under 21 Premier League Cup semi-finals.

Town host Hull City at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday while the Hammers face Liverpool at their Rush Green academy ground on Wednesday.

Both games start at 7.00 and will go to extra time and penalties if necessary (the final is over two legs).

Coach Frankie Bunn wants Town fans to turn out in force for a tie which costs just £2 to watch for season-card holders and concessions (it’s £4 for adult without season cards).

And West Ham academy manager Terry Westley also believes vocal backing can have a big impact.

“Against Blackburn Rovers in the previous round, we had close to 2,000 and there was a nice atmosphere around the ground,” he said.

“The players need to feel like it’s a different type of game, it’s not just a training match.

“They have to feel that edge of it being a semi-final and have to handle it.

“They have to deal with the manager (Slaven Bilic) in the crowd or any of the directors who will come and watch, so it is different.

“The amount of first-team managers of other clubs that have requested tickets for the game already, because they want to see what the teams have, will give a different feel to it.

“The more people that come to see our young players on show can only help us.”

Hull also have a Tuesday-night Championship fixture, at home to Nottingham Forest.
