Huddersfield Town’s Under-23s will host Bristol City at the John Smith’s Stadium in the Professional Development League on Thursday afternoon.

The match against the PDL South side will kick-off at 2pm. Town fans can watch the game for £4 adults and £2 concessions, which includes Season Card holders.

The Development Squad comes into the game on the back of its second win of the season; a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at PPG Canalside on Sunday afternoon. You can watch the highlights from this game courtesy of HTTV below!



The young Terriers are third in the embryonic Professional Development League North table after wins over Hull and Forest; a draw at home to Charlton Athletic and a defeat at Watford. The two sides above Bunn’s side are Sheffield Wednesday and Hull City, who have superior goal difference.

Senior Professional Development Coach Frankie Bunn has recently been without attacker Ronan Coughlan and centre back Dylan Cogill, who have both missed the start of the campaign through knee injuries.

Thursday’s opposition, Bristol City, sits ninth in the PDL South table with one point from the opening four games. The team is led by former City player and Scotland international Jamie McAllister.

The Professional Development League 2 is split into two regional divisions, North and South. Teams play opponents in their own division twice and the other division once, before the top two teams from each league meet in the Play-Offs to determine the overall champions.
