Academy Sides in action on Saturday and Monday

- Leigh Bromby’s Under-18s host Burnley on Saturday morning
- Mark Hudson’s Under-23s travel to Bolton on Monday
- Follow updates on both games on Twitter; @htafcacacademy

Both the Huddersfield Town Academy sides are in action this weekend with Leigh Bromby’s Under-18 side kicking off the action with a top of the table clash on Saturday morning.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 11am at PPG Canalside ahead of the First Team’s Fourth Round FA-Cup tie against Birmingham City.

Burnley U18s sit top with 32 points from 17 games played whilst Town have 30 points from the same number of games played. Thus, a Town win would see them overtake the Clarets to take top spot of the Professional Development League North Division.

Burnley most recently beat Birmingham City 4-3, whilst Town’s last match was their 3-1 victory at Barnsley, with last weekend’s scheduled game against Sheffield Wednesday postponed.

On Monday, the Under-23s will play at Bolton’s home of the Lancashire FA County Ground, Thurston Road, Leyland, PR25 2LF, with the game scheduled for a 7pm kick-off. Fans can go and support Mark Hudson’s side with admission priced at £3 for adults and £1 concessions.

Mark Hudson’s side were in action last Monday as they were condemned to a narrow 1-0 defeat by West Yorkshire rivals, Leeds United at Elland Road.

The Under-23s will be in for a tough game as they face top-of-the-table Bolton Wanderers having collected 31 points from its opening 17 games.

An array of food will be available from the Perrys Fanzone, so why not get your lunch and watch the Under-18s in action before heading over to the John Smith’s Stadium to watch the First Team in action.

Updates from both games will be available via the designated Academy Twitter account; @htafcacademy.

U23s lose to late winner at Bolton

- HTAFC U23s lose 2-1 at Bolton Wanderers
- Luca Colville the scorer for Town
- Highlights on #HTTV next week

Huddersfield Town Under-23s were defeated 2-1 by Bolton Wanderers in their Professional Development League North fixture on Monday evening. Despite the game being level for a large part, the host grabbed an injury time winner to secure all three points.

Mark Hudson made six changes to the side that were defeated by a single-goal at Leeds United last week as First-Team Players Dean Whitehead and Martin Cranie came into the side along with Mason O’Malley, Luca Colville, Rory Brown and Tom Bexton.

There were places on the bench for Regan Booty, Romoney Crichlow-Noble and Olly Dyson with Rarmani Edmonds-Green, Harry Spratt and Joel Coleman not involved. Tom Bexton and Rory Brown were both triallists from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The game was played at the Lancashire County FA Ground with kick-off taking place at 7pm on Monday evening.

Bolton were to take an early lead in the game through leading Professional Development League North scorer Craig Hall. The striker increased his tally in the 8th minute getting on the end of a Luca Navarro cross from the right to head past Rory Brown in the Town goal.

It would take Hudson’s side 25minutes to respond as they drew the game level. An in-swinging corner from the right by young full-back Mason O’Malley was duly headed home by Luca Colville to level up the scores.

Bolton would snatch all three points through an injury time winner. A cross into the box from Liam Morris found a waiting Jack Earing in the box who headed home to secure the win for the host.

Next up for Town is a game against Burnley next Monday 5 February at PPG Canalside with kick off scheduled for 1pm.

Town’s Starting Line-Up (4-2-3-1):
Rory Brown; Mason O’Malley, Tom Bexton, Martin Cranie, Jordan Williams; Lewis O’Brien, Dean Whitehead; Luca Colville (Olly Dyson, 63’), Matty Daly (Regan Booty, 87’), Dom Tear (Micah Obiero, 71’); Rekeil Pyke

Unused Subs:
