Young Terriers back at home on Wednesday

- Huddersfield Town B Team back in action on Wednesday
- Young Terriers host Salford City in a friendly
- Supporters can attend the 1pm kick-off

Huddersfield Town’s B Team welcome Salford City to Millers Oils High Performance Complex on Wednesday 2 November, 1pm kick-off!

The Young Terriers will continue their run of games with a friendly against Salford City on Wednesday 2 November, 1pm kick-off, with the game taking place at Millers Oils High Performance Complex (509 Leeds Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ).

Jon Worthington’s side will be looking to use this friendly to get back into form following their recent struggle – they will especially want to bounce back from their latest result against Blackpool in the Central League, which saw the Terriers leave Longridge Town with a 2-0 loss.

Supporters can attend the 1pm kick-off at Millers Oils High Performance Complex!

Our B Team defender, David Adewoju, previewed this game:

Adewoju started by discussing how he has found the season so for, training and playing for the B Team whilst also training with the First Team.

“I’m enjoying the season so far, starting to train with the First Team as well as the B Team means I get to see both sides.

“The First Team is a lot faster than the B Team and that allows me to take the new things I am learning with me to my B Team games.

“Training with the First Team is much more intense, and the players are a lot stronger and smarter, so you have to be on your toes and be alert – Will Boyle has been helping me because he I so vocal and makes sure you’re doing the right thing.”

The 18-year-old touched on the recent form of the Young Terriers and the volume of games they play.

“We have had a lot of games and then some of them have been after intense sessions, so the break that we’ve just had will hopefully help us out a little bit tomorrow.”

Finally, our defender looked ahead to tomorrow’s game and how they have been preparing, as well as what he is expecting from Salford City.

“We have been focussing on making sure we are defending our box, as well as working on penetrating the opposition box and being clinical.

“I think we have played Salford a few times now, and each time it has been a tough game, so we are expecting a solid side to compete against tomorrow – we have to be up for it.”

Midgley and Falls goals see B Team return to winning ways

- Huddersfield Town B Team win against Salford City
- Ben Midgley and Conor Falls score in 2-0 win
- Young Terriers return to winning ways

Goals from Ben Midgley and Conor Falls in the first half, as well as a penalty save from Michael Roxburgh after the break, secured the win for the Huddersfield Town B Team against Salford City.

The Young Terriers looked very organised throughout the game at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex, strong in defence when they needed to be combined with being smart when they pushed forwards and attacked.

The first half was dominated by our eager B Team as they dominated the game and kept possession well, allowing Ben Midgley and Conor Falls to score both telling goals inside the first 45 minutes.

The opening chance for the Terriers came shortly after kick-off as possession was kept well and Midgley crossed the ball into the box and found Falls, but his effort was saved by Joel Torrance.

Following that move, it was our defenders turn to stand strong as Alfie Henderson’s shot from outside the box was blocked, with the Terriers then going on the counter-attack. This resulted in the woodwork being hit twice in quick succession, as Myles Bright had his chance and hit the right post and then Connor Shanks went for the rebound but then hit the bar and Salford City remained in the game after two very good chances. 

Ernaldo Krasniqi soon sent Donay O’Brien-Brady free on the right, who then crossed the ball into the box and found the head of Falls, but this was anticipated well by Torrance and saved.

Defender Shane Maroodza had his own chance to put Town into the lead moments before the opening goal was actually scored, as a Town corner was headed back towards the centre of the box and volleyed just wide by the full back and out for a Salford goal kick.

Town’s first goal came in the 21st minute after Midgley won back the ball high in the attacking third, following the goal kick taken by Torrance. Our captain drove the ball into the Salford area and fired past the opposing ‘keeper to put the Terriers in front.

Our opponents had a chance to equalise almost immidately, but their shot from the edge of the box was blocked well by Loick Ayina.

Liam Humbled then fancied his chances against Nicholas Bilokapic, also from the edge of the box, but the Australian ‘keeper read it well and made the save comfortably.

The second goal for the Terriers came in the 30th minute as Falls doubled the lead with a fantastic header and diverted O’Brien-Brady’s cross into the top corner.

Salford tried to get one back just before the break as Kelly Nmai wanted to make the second half closer for his side, but his shot went straight to Bilokapic.

The second half saw the Devils work hard to try and get past the Town defence, but our Young Terriers stood strong to keep the clean sheet and secure the win.

Djavan Pedro was the first to try and get one back as he took the ball into the box, but his shot was just wide of the Town goal.

Eager to find the back of the net, Salford pushed forwards again and crossed the ball into the Town box, but substitute ‘keeper Michael Roxburgh punched the ball away from danger.

Not wanting to lose their hold of the game, Tom Iorpenda sent the ball to Shanks, who carried the ball to the edge of the box and took his shot – but this went just high and over the bar.

Towards the end of the game, Salford were awarded a penalty after Ayina was adjudged to have made a foul in the box. Pedro stepped up form the penalty spot but Roxburgh made a brilliant save to keep the clean sheet for the Terriers.

Town’s team (4-2-3-1)
Nicholas Bilokapic (Michael Roxburgh, 46’); Neo Eccleston, Loick Ayina, David Adewoju, Shane Maroodza; Ernaldo Krasniqi (Sonny Whittingham, 46’), Ben Midgley (c) (Tom Iorpenda, 49’); Donay O’Brien-Brady, Myles Bright (Michael Stone, 41’), Connor Shanks; Conor Falls (Charles Ondo, 80’)
