Huddersfield Town B Team Coach Jon Worthington praised his players efforts in their 5-1 victory over Tadcaster Albion on Saturday afternoon.

Town got off to a winning start in their first game of pre-season with a late flurry of goals at a rainy Global Stadium.

Goals from Matty Daly, Josh Austerfield, Myles Bright and a brace from Brahima Diarra secured victory for the Young Terriers.

Much of the game was closely contested, with Town's second goal coming in the 65th minute. Worthy felt his side deserved to find such dominance in the final third.

"It was pleasing to see those chances go in towards the end, it was only a matter of time really, we had created lots of clear-cut chances in each half.

"It's an area we're definitely looking to improve on to become more clinical in front of goal."

Town's players restarted pre-season multiple weeks ago and the manager was pleased with his player's approach to the game.

"We've been in pre-season earlier than most teams, we're probably in week five now, so the lads have been ready for this.

"The group is strong with good professionals in it, carrying their good habits into the off-season and they all came back in good shape."

"That's what we expected from them, it’s the standards that we set, and it allows us to prepare better and more efficiently."

In the 76th minute Josh Austerfield netted a particularly eye-catching goal. His Coach was quick to praise the way he showcased his attacking quality despite being a defensive player.

"Goalscoring isn't something I'd usually put at the top of Josh's list of attributes, so it was nice for him to get that goal and show his quality today!

"I think Josh has a lot of different qualities to offer the team, he's a talented player."

Next up for the B Team is Hyde United on Friday 9 July 2021. Worthy hopes to see his side push on in the coming friendlies.

"I hope to see progression from today, collectively applying the things that we work on in training to matches."

"We've touched on things tactically and now the games are coming fast there'll be more work on that to make sure every player is clear on his role and responsibilities."
