Huddersfield Town’s Under-21 side will play in the Professional Development League 2 Play-Off Final against Sheffield United on Saturday 14 May 2016.

The game will take place at Bramall Lane, with a 1pm kick-off. Admission prices are set as £3 adults and £1 concessions.

It will be the third time that the two sides have come up against each other in the 2015/16 campaign, and with one win apiece, it’s set to be an intriguing encounter.

A winner will have to be decided on the afternoon, so extra-time and penalties will be played if needed.

The teams first faced each other this season all the way back in November last year, when the 10-man Terriers ran out 1-0 winners thanks to William Boyle’s goal, despite Fraser Horsfall’s sending off.

In early February, The Blades got their revenge as they resigned Town to a first defeat in five months with Ben Whiteman and Harrison McGahey finding the net in a 2-0 triumph.

Frankie Bunn’s men had a superb season as they finished top of the PDL2 North table with 65 points. Having netted 62 goals in total, Bunn’s team is the highest scorer across the two regional divisions.

The young Terriers also got to the final 12 months ago, but just lost 3-2 to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, so they’ll be hoping for a successful day this time around.

Regan Booty and Danny Kane got the goals for a very youthful Huddersfield side to reach the final versus Millwall, with two Under-16 players and five Under-18 players featuring, which underlines the fantastic achievement. Highlights of that game are below via HTTV!

Saturday’s host ended the campaign eight points behind Town in the northern section in second position.

In their respective semi-final, Diego De Girolamo netted a brace against Charlton Athletic at The Valley to send The Blades through to challenge Town.
