The proposed Football League restructure - if given the go-ahead - could be good news for Huddersfield Town’s travelling fans.

One of the suggestions in the radical blueprint which would take effect in 2019 is a big decrease in midweek matches.

Long away trips during the week have been a persistent headache for supporters.

The Championship alone had 179 midweek matches this season, excluding those that took place on bank holidays.

As many as 11 of those involved round trips in excess of 500 miles each between the grounds of the two clubs playing one another.

Middlesbrough fans suffered the most from midweek scheduling.

A Boro diehard travelling to and from the club’s ground for every away game held during the week would have racked up a massive 3,824 miles.

A QPR fan would have clocked up 3,196, a Brighton supporter 3,162 and a Leeds United fan 3,088.

A Town follower would have clocked up 1,382 miles.

Changing these matches to take place on the weekend wouldn’t remove the distances of course, but what would change is the times fans got home.

For example, the longest distance travelled between grounds for a midweek match was between Middlesbrough and Cardiff, with both clashes on a Tuesday.

A round trip between the two grounds is 572 miles, a five hour and 18 minute journey each way according to Google Maps.

If the match finished around 10.00pm, fans wouldn’t have got home until around 3.30am.

Town’s longest away midweek journey was the 430-mile round trip to Charlton Athletic.
