Our Under 19s face Rotherham United in the EFL Youth Alliance League

- Huddersfield Town Under 19s in action on Wednesday
- Young Terriers host Rotherham United at the Millers Oil High Performance Complex
- Supporters can attend the 1pm kick-off free of charge

Huddersfield Town Under 19s are back in action on Wednesday afternoon as they host Rotherham United.

The Young Terriers are back Youth Alliance League action, playing Rotherham United in a 1pm kick-off on Wednesday 22 February with the game being played at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex (509 Leeds Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ).

The Under 19s are looking to bounce back from a narrow 5-4 defeat to Lincoln City in the EFL Youth Alliance League at the weekend.

Town currently sit eighth in Group A with 19 points from 17 games but are without a win since December.

Rotherham come into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat against Harrogate Town and are currently bottom of the group, with four points from their first 15 games, so they will be looking for a positive result against our youngsters in order to start climbing the table.

The Millers will be looking to return the favour after Town won the reverse of this fixture, which ended 2-3, back in October.

Victory in latest EFL Youth Alliance fixture

- Huddersfield Town Under-19s 3-1 Rotherham United
- Goals from Hazeem Bakre, Somtobenna Chukwugbo & Michael Stone
- Young Terriers showcase goal threat in their latest game

The Huddersfield Town Under-19 side showcased their goal threat in their 3-1 EFL Youth Alliance victory over Rotherham United on Wednesday afternoon.

In a remarkably open game, Michael Tonge and Oran Thompson’s side could have scored more than the three goals they got against their South Yorkshire opponents at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex.

In the end, first half goals from top scorer Hazeem Bakre (pictured above) and trialist Somtobenna Chukwugbo, as well as a late Michael Stone strike, were enough to seal all three league points.

The game started with two chances for the visiting side, who were led by former Town defender Joe Skarz, but first goalkeeper Francis Hurl and then centre back Michael Parker made important stops on the line to keep the scores level.

Instead, Town converted their first chance of the game in clinical fashion. Having defended a ninth minute corner, the ball was cleared into the path of Bakre on halfway, who outstripped two defenders for pace to get to the edge of the Rotherham area before comprehensively placing his left-footed shot past the goalkeeper.

Bakre had another goal ruled out for offside soon after following good work from winger Tyree Sanusi, but the Young Terriers didn’t have to wait long for their second through Under-16 trialist Chukwugbo. Sanusi found Bakre with a pass down the left channel and the striker turned provider, squaring the ball for the winger to fire home at close range.

It looked like that might open the floodgates, but credit to the visitors; they fought back with their own goal in the 22nd minute, with a player converting after Hurl initially saved a header from a wide free kick.

Although the game slowed down thereafter, both sides had efforts at goal and could have scored more before midfielder Stone’s 90th minute effort. In the end, he sealed it in expert fashion – sending a free kick from mere inches outside the area, awarded for a trip on substitute Fope Deru, arrowing into the top corner.
