The Newcastle Knights have two matches left to play in a tumultuous 2014 season and have a major incentive.

To make their Members and supporters proud.

The Knights finish the season taking on the Parramatta Eels in Round 25 and the St George Illawarra Dragons on Old Boys Day in Round 26.

The Eels are sitting in 8th position and the Dragons are in 11th. Both teams remain in contention to play in the final series.

Recent matches played at Hunter Stadium have been highly entertaining for those supporting the red and blue, including an after-the-siren win over the Melbourne Storm.

“We had a rough start at home for a fair chunk of the year but I’d like to think we’ve done our fans proud at home over the past month or so,” Gidley said after Saturday’s loss in Brisbane.

“I’d like to see us send them away after these last couple of games proud of their team and looking forward to next year.”

The Knights will be without Akuila Uate (knee) and James McManus (foot), who have both ruled out for the remainder of the season due to injury.

“When someone’s ruled out through injury or suspension or whatever it might be, you’ve just got to move on as quickly as you can and try and get your head right for the game,” Gidley insists.

The Knights have Monday off before returning to training on Tuesday.
