B TEAM BACK IN ACTION AT BRENTFORD ON SATURDAY

18 December 2020

Young Terriers head to the capital for a great test!

- Huddersfield Town B Team back in action on Saturday
- Young Terriers travel to London to face Brentford B
- Updates available on @htafcacademy Twitter account

Huddersfield Town’s B Team is back in action this Saturday, making the journey to the capital to face Brentford B.

The game will take place behind-closed-doors at the Bees’ Jersey Road training ground from 11am, and we’ll have live updates from the game on the dedicated Academy Twitter feed - @htafcacademy.

With Danny Schofield on First Team duty for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game against Watford, Jon Worthington will lead the Young Terriers on the day.

Previous fixtures against Brentford B have been terrific tests, with results swinging in the favour of both sides in the past, and Saturday promises to be no different. The Bees – led by former Brentford midfielder Sam Saunders – are looking for their fifth straight win after recent victories over QPR, Watford, Arsenal and Charlton Athletic.

The last B Team outing for Town came at Middlesbrough in early December, when a late flurry of goals from the hosts led to a 3-2 defeat for Town. That came after home wins over Newcastle United and Sheffield Wednesday.

REPORT: BRENTFORD B 4-1 TOWN B

19 December 2020

Town’s B Team beaten by strong Brentford B side

- Hudderfield Town B given tough test against Brentford B
- Young Terriers between 4-1 at Jersey Road
- Sam Ompreon on target for the youngsters

Huddersfield Town’s B Team were given a tough test against Brentford B away at Jersey Road on Saturday morning.

Jon Worthington led the side, who found themselves a goal down just six minutes in when Alex Gilbert scored from the edge of the box.

Town responded well to the opener. Brahima Diarra played the ball to Jaheim Headley, but the linesman flagged for offside.

Minutes later Etienne Camara provided Sam Sharrock-Peplow with the ball. However, Brentford’s Ellery Balcombe was quick off his line to clear the danger.

However, it was the hosts who scored the next goal, doubling their lead in the 20th minute. One of their two trialists found the back of the net from close range following a corner.

Town were forced into an early change just after the half an hour mark. Jaheim Headley was injured, and consequently replaced by Myles Bright.

Six minutes later, Town were reduced to 10-men, as Mustapha Olagunju was the last man back and sent off for a foul on Joe Adams.

The Young Terriers finished the first half with some good chances but were unable to find themselves a way onto the scoresheet.

The hosts started the second half in the same way that they did the first, scoring their third two minutes after the restart, before adding their fourth, and final, goal of the game in the 56th minute.

Giosue Bellagambi showcased a superb save just moments later to deny what seemed like a definite goal for Brentford.

Town began to pile on the pressure in the closing 20 minutes of the game, with Ben Jackson clearing a Brentford corner, and Kian Harratt winning two for the Young Terriers.

The pressure paid off, seeing the youngsters pull back a goal in the 82nd minute thanks to second half substitute Sam Ompreon. He went close to bagging a brace just moments later, but his shot was dragged wide.

The final chance of the game fell to the hosts in the closing minute, but Bellagambi provided another excellent save to keep the score at 4-1.
