Norwich City's march into the League One promotion race has added hundreds to the ranks of the club's season ticket-holders.
The Canaries have sold 650 half-season tickets on the back of a run of six successive home wins that has taken them into third place in the table.
Richard Gough, City's customer service manager, said there had also been a pre-Christmas rush for casual seats for the next two home games against Huddersfield Town and Millwall.

“We have sold nearly 650 half-season tickets so far, and Monday was our busiest day so far,” he said. “We can sell up to four to five hundred more before we reach our season ticket cap of just over 20,000.”
Relegation from the Championship meant City lost more than 1,000 season ticket-holders in the summer but they are fast filling the gaps as their revival continues under Paul Lambert.

Only Leeds have a better average home gate, regaining top spot thanks to a crowd of 36,723 - the biggest in the division this season - for the 2-2 draw against Huddersfield in Saturday's Yorkshire derby.
“Our average gate for first 10 home games was 24,281, which is higher than for the first 10 in the Championship last season,” said Gough.
“The Huddersfield game on December 19 is selling really well and the Millwall game on Boxing Day is selling out rather quickly, though there are still tickets available.
“We have found that a lot of people like to buy tickets for the Boxing Day game as an extra stocking filler.”
The Millwall match kicks off at 12.45pm, at the request of police.
Half-season tickets cover the last 11 home games of the 2009-10 campaign, starting against Exeter City on January 9. They are available in all parts of the stadium. Prices are from �12 for under-12s, �35 for under-16s and �199 for adult seats.
Corporate half-season tickets and Gunn Club memberships are also on sale.
