Huddersfield Town supporters can now watch highlights from the B Team’s emphatic Premier League Cup win over Watford!
The Young Terriers put six past Watford in the first half to make it two wins from two in the group stages.
The fixture started with a high tempo, as both sides had chances at either end during the first couple of minutes of the game.
Firstly, Kian Harratt forced Vincent Angelini into a routine save as the forward’s header from Ben Jackson’s corner was held.
The Hornets then countered up the field, with JJ McKiernan rolling the ball into the feet of Ryan Cassidy, who curled an effort just wide of the upright.
Town almost handed the away side the lead on seven minutes, as Loick Ayina’s lackadaisical pass was intercepted by Shaq Forde before the winger’s snapshot was held by Nicholas Bilokapic.
That mishap seemed to spur the Young Terriers into life, as the home side netted four goals in a manic 16-minute spell.
Harratt bagged his seventh goal of the campaign as he was on hand to tuck a loose ball at the back post into the bottom corner following an uncleared corner.
Jon Russell then netted a quickfire brace as he found the same bottom corner with two shots from distance before Micah Obiero’s effort deflected off the leg of Andi Janjeva and looped over a hapless Angelini to make it four-nil.
Then, on the half-hour mark, Town added a fifth through Jaheim Headley, who played a give-and-go pass with Harratt before the wide man rolled the ball under the goalkeeper.
As the half came to a close, the Young Terriers maintained their goal-hungry selves, seeing efforts from Russell and Headley go agonisingly wide before Obiero extended Town’s advantage as he tapped home from Harratt’s saved header.
Town entered the second half with a slower approach; however, Jon Worthington’s side ensured that they did not let their standards slip, as they recycled the ball and retained possession professionally to keep Watford at bay.
