After tickets went on sale on Tuesday the response from followers has been emphatic after a slight hike in prices, with with an adult seat going up by £20 to £389.

That follows on from a freeze last season, a pattern repeated in all but the first season in League One over recent campaigns.

The total shows hunger is strong to back the bid of Kenny Jackett’s men to reach the Championship after coming up just short this term.

The figure far outstrips the total sold at this stage a year ago.
