Bowen Eager To Reward ‘Unbelievable’ Away Support

04 October 2019
Jarrod Bowen is hoping to repay Hull City’s army of travelling fans at Huddersfield Town on Saturday with a second successive Yorkshire Derby win.

The Tigers’ claimed bragging rights over Sheffield Wednesday in midweek when Tom Eaves’ first goal in a Hull City shirt secured a 1-0 win at the KCOM Stadium and head to West Yorkshire looking to secure back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.

Grant McCann’s men will be backed by more than 1,500 fans at the John Smith’s Stadium, with Bowen hoping they can act as a 12th man as he and his team-mates come up against a Huddersfield side boosted by a first win under Danny Cowley – and a first since February for the Club – against Stoke City on Tuesday night.

“Yorkshire derbies are very good and enjoyable games to be involved in,” he said.

“We got a good win against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek and now we’ve got a trip to Huddersfield ahead of the forthcoming international break.

“It’s a local one for the fans – and having seen the support we had at Luton the other week with more than a thousand fans making the trip – I’m sure they’ll travel in their numbers once again.

“They were unbelievable with the support they gave us at Luton. It was great to hear the passion and support from the away end at Kenilworth Road and it will be great to see the fans get behind the team once again on Saturday.

“Hopefully they can play a big role again in helping us to pick up another three points. It’s another great opportunity for us and one that we’re determined to take.”
