LEE CLARK today paid tribute to Huddersfield Town’s travelling supporters after his side gave Arsenal a huge FA Cup scare.
The Galpharm side had more than 5,100 fans in a crowd of 59,375 at the Emirates Stadium where it took a late penalty from World Cup winner Cesc Fabregas to deny Town a fourth round replay.
It was the second highest attendance for a Town match since the war, being beaten only by the 59,772 that watched the top flight game against Manchester United at Old Trafford in November 1947.
Clark said: “The fans were just magnificent from start to finish and created a superb atmosphere.
“It was great for my players to run out to backing like that and it certainly helped them produce the kind of performance they did.
“The fans were an immense part of what we achieved, and just like my team I was proud of them.”
Now Clark wants the fans to carry on cheering his team as they resume their League I promotion bid at home Carlisle United tomorrow (7.45).
