- Young Terriers to face Burnley
- First Team youngsters set to feature in Dean Whitehead’s side
- Game to take place at Barnfield Training Centre
Huddersfield Town Under-19s will make the trip across the Pennines to face Burnley in a behind-closed-doors game at Barnfield Training Centre on Wednesday 10 April 2019; 11am kick-off.
In their last outing the Young Terriers suffered a 5-1 away defeat to a senior Larne FC side, with trialist Tim Akinola grabbing the consolation goal for Town.
Dean Whitehead is expected to name a strong side for tomorrow’s match against Burnley with First Team players Demeaco Duhaney and Aaron Rowe both set to feature.
Joel Coleman, Matty Daly and Abdelhamid Sabiri are also set to play a part in the game tomorrow morning.
Duhaney became the first player since the re-structure of the Academy to break into the First Team in February as the full-back made his Town and Premier League debut in the Club’s 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Rowe made his First Team debut in March against AFC Bournemouth when he came on as a second-half substitute, and the 18-year-old made his full professional debut a week later in the 4-3 thriller with West Ham United.
Coleman and Daly are yet to feature for the First Team during the 2018/19 campaign, but both have been named on the bench three and four times respectively.
Sabiri has featured three times for the First Team this season with the German Under-21 international starting twice in August in the league game away at Manchester City before starting the Club’s Carabao Cup tie away at Stoke City.
The midfielder also came on as a second-half substitute in the Club’s 2-1 defeat to AFC Bournemouth in December but was then replaced three minutes later after suffering a shoulder injury.
