RYAN HUDSON has publicly thanked the Giants fans for backing up his suggestion to come up with new songs.
The in-form hooker, right, made a plea to the supporters a fortnight ago to extend their range of songs beyond the `Fartown, Fartown' chant.
Hudson couldn't have been happier with the response, and he's hoping it's repeated when his in-form side takes on Bradford Bulls in tomorrow's big Super League clash at the Galpharm (8.00).
"What we heard from the fans at Salford last Friday night was awesome," said the 27-year-old.
"I don't know if it had anything to do with the plea I made or not but, whatever the reason, the singing was brilliant.
"And I would personally like to thank everyone for supporting us in the way they did.
"It gave us all a massive boost and there's no question it helped raise our game.
"I just hope there's a similar response against the Bulls tomorrow, because this is a huge game for us.
"We're all aware that we haven't beaten Bradford in Super League.
"But I know that if we team-up together we can put this nightmare record behind us.
"So, as well as hoping to hear the songs, I would urge all our fans to rally round and get as many members of their family and friends to come down as possible.
"We've got a feeling this is going to be a very special night!"
Giants officials are already gearing up for a bumper Galpharm gate.
They are expecting a five-figure crowd, with tickets in the lower tier of the Riverside Family Stand continuing to sell well.
There will, therefore, be no pay on the turnstiles available for that part of the ground tomorrow night, so those wishing to sit there must buy their tickets in advance.
And ticket demand has been particularly positive on the back of the Giants' one-off promotion for this match.
All supporters who have bought a ticket are being entered into a draw to have lunch with the Giants' squad.
The second prize is an official signed Giants matchball.
On top of the draw, fans receive a £2 discount for buying their tickets in advance.
Club officials are also urging fans to arrive early to avoid congestion - and get the chance to collect an inflatable `Jammer Hammer'.
Thanks to Hillstone Developments, the first 300 young Giants fans arriving in the Riverside Family Stand will receive a free `Jammer the Hammer' inflatable,
They have been produced so youngsters can cheer for fans' favourite and joker of the pack Jamahl Lolesi, who has been in such a rich vein of form.
