Cudjoe asks Huddersfield fans to be patient

Huddersfield captain Leroy Cudjoe has asked the club’s fans to be patient as it goes through a period of transition following the departure of Rick Stone.

Stone was sacked last month after a disappointing start to the season which sees the Giants second from bottom in Super League, with two wins and a draw from 11 games to date.

They face a tough trip to league leaders St Helens this Friday, before another tough away game at Warrington the following week.

Although interim coach Chris Thorman oversaw a credible draw against Leeds, Huddersfield are expected to make an appointment from Down Under soon.

Cudjoe told the club’s official website: “The fans support is massive, I understand their frustrations and disappointment at this moment in time and believe me, we as a Club are feeling the exact same, but we need you to keep turning up and cheering us on and be patient.

“We’ve made some really positive changes off the field which will be good for us in the long run but with having limited training sessions over Easter plus having lots of players injured I hope you can be patient because we will turn this around.

“I know you will keep turning up and help create a positive atmosphere for the boys to play in which will really help spur us on.”

Cudjoe, who is celebrating his testimonial this year, hasn’t played since September last year due to injury.

Huddersfield had a disappointing start to last season before rallying to finish in the top eight.

They were beaten 30-12 at home by Salford at the weekend, which was the Red Devils’ first away win in a year.

Huddersfield haven’t won since beating Widnes 28-16 on March 9.
