Smith thankful for travelling support
Tommy Smith has thanked the Huddersfield fans for their unwavering support after they travelled to Chelsea last weekend.
The West Yorkshire outfit look almost certain to go down and they were heavily beaten at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain both netted braces before David Luiz wrapped up a 5-0 victory in the capital.
Despite the heavy defeat, Huddersfield fans continued to show their support for the squad and Smith was grateful to see them turn out in such numbers.
Smith told HTTV: “Going over to thank the fans at the end of the game was the least we could do.
“We came here tried to play and get a result but, ultimately, they paid their hard-earned money to get down here to watch us.
“It’s a long way for them, we get that, it’s a Saturday, their weekend. I know some people don’t think we appreciate that, but I certainly do and so do the other lads.
“We really do appreciate the fans’ support, it makes a massive difference, especially when we aren’t getting results.
"It’s something we really do appreciate and can’t thank them enough for.”
