Away Days: Huddersfield Town

16 October 2014

Prepare For Saturday's Game

15 days will have passed since Blackpool last played when they walk out at Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and they'll be looking to build on recent good results.

The Seasiders have drawn 1-1 at The John Smith's Stadium on their last two visits, but won last time out and will be well rested after the international break.

Here is a quick guide on getting to Huddersfield.

By car: A little over 70 miles separate Blackpool and Huddersfield, and supporters can travel between the two in under an hour and a half.

By train: Supporters can travel directly between Blackpool North and Huddersfield, and it takes around two hours 20 minutes. From there it takes approximately 15 minutes to walk to the stadium.

The Rope Walk Pub, which is alongside a Pizza Hut and Odeon, is next to the stadium and ideal for food and drinks. Otherwise the town centre is a  short walk from the stadium and has plenty of food and drink outlets available.

Formerly known as the Alfred McAlpine Stadium and Galpharm Stadium, the John Smith's Stadium has been home to Huddersfield Town since 1994.

The Terriers share their home with the Huddersfield Giants and it can hold 24,5000 supporters inside.

Blackpool's first visit to the stadium came in 1994, when Andy Watson was on target for the visitors.

Supporters can pay on the day at Huddersfield Town, but it will be cash only. Tickets will remain on sale at the Bloomfield Road ticket office until 4pm Friday.

Tickets are priced as follows:
- £24 for Adults
- £14 for Seniors (Over-60)
- £10 for Under-18s
- £5 for Under-8s
