HUDDERSFIELD Giants are expecting a bumper claret and gold turn-out at The Willows tonight.
Club officials report an upsurge in ticket sales after the club's winning Millennium Magic weekend when they beat Wakefield to move into a play-off spot for the first time with a sixth Super League win on the trot.
Attentions now turn to the Carnegie Challenge Cup and tonight's fifth-round tie against Salford (8.00).
And all the signs suggest Giants fans will be out in force as their side bids to reach the Challenge Cup final for a second successive season.
"Early signs are that we will be taking our largest following to Salford for many a year," said Giants managing director Richard Thewlis, left.
"Tickets have been selling well from the Galpharm ticket office and remain on sale until 5pm today.
"In addition, the Flyers are reporting strong interest and extra transport has been laid on by them.
"So, with the additional pay-on-the-day supporters, I can confidently say we will have a strong claret and gold presence at The Willows."
There is no segregation at The Willows, but Thewlis is keen to see the Giants fans massed together.
"The players often talk about the surge of adrenaline and boost that a noisy vocal and colourful following brings," he added.
"And The Willows has a great terrace behind the posts that away fans usually occupy, which would be great to see decked out with the claret and gold.
"Our support in Cardiff was again magnificent, but our fans were placed in different areas of the stadium, which is something I will raise with the RFL.
"We need to travel in mass and congregate in mass, creating the spectacle that we all wish for, which is a sea of claret and gold at all the grounds we visit."
Tickets are priced £12 for adults and £6 for concessions.
