Hudson calls for fans to show unity against City.

Byline: MEL BOOTH @examinerHTAFC

MARK Hudson has called on Huddersfield Town's fans to give full backing to the team against Manchester City tomorrow.

Bottom-of-the-table Town are 18/1 to win the clash with Pep Guardiola's side and 1/7 to lose, but Hudson says anything can happen when everyone pulls together.

Taking charge of the senior team for the first time in the wake of David Wagner's departure earlier in the week - Jan Siewert of Borussia Dortmund II is hot favourite for the role permanently - Elite Development coach Hudson says unity is paramount.

And that includes the fans for tomorrow's Sky televised clash. So what is his message to the blue and white faithful? "Get behind the club, like they have been throughout the last few years," he said.

"I would like to thank them for what they have created. We have an identity.

"The focus is to show on Sunday that we are all together.

"The atmosphere will be brilliant. It will be really good."

Hudson says the players have worked well in training and will be ready to go in what is a fresh chance to prove what they can do.

"I can only speak from what I have seen on the grass and they've been good, they've been at it," said Hudson of the squad.

"That is what you would expect as professionals.

"Change happens in football and it isn't new to anyone, really.

"They know they have a game to play, they know we have jobs to work hard for.

"My message (to them) was that I have a different set of eyes and they all have to show me what they have got.

"They have to show they want the shirt and that they are fighting for the club - that's what I expect.

"Every player who is fit and on the grass has to show a willingness to work. That's what you should expect."
