- B Team beat Watford 6-0
- Young Terriers win two from two in Premier League Cup group
- Coach Jon Worthington reflects on performance at full-time
Huddersfield Town B Team Coach Jon Worthington was in a satisfied mood when reflecting on his side’s 6-0 home win against Watford in the Premier League Cup.
Played in front of 356 Town fans at the John Smith’s Stadium, the B Team rushed in to a 6-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Kian Harratt, Jon Russell (2), Jaheim Headley and Micah Obiero (2).
Speaking at full-time, Jon Worthington highlighted how professional the performance was, and insisted that was the standard his side should be looking to set.
“I’m really pleased. I thought the lads were really professional throughout, they were at it from the first minute and some of the football at times – I really just enjoyed watching it.
“That was probably the best I’ve seen us in terms of being ruthless and clinical in front of goal. There’s been times throughout the season where we’ve dominated games and not been to be really clinical in the final third. Today, unfortunately for Watford, they were on the receiving end of that.
“Professionalism is the key. We talked about it at half-time. We could easily have slipped in to being a little bit sloppy and having some bad habits, but even though we didn’t score any more goals, we controlled the game with the ball, which was pleasing.
“There was some really top performances tonight, and I couldn’t single anybody out, to be honest. We performed to a really high level and when you get so many players to that kind of elite level then the result follows.
“That’s the kind of standard we’re trying to set. I’ve told them before, I have a lot of belief in this group and they’re really talented crop. I see it day in and day out in training, but they’ve got to show that in a games, in these Cup games and these games inside stadiums. That’s when they’ve got to deliver and today’s a step in the right direction in doing that.
“It’s great that we got the support down. It’s great to see and gives the lads a real boost for definite. Playing a night game under the lights at the John Smith’s Stadium, it creates a great atmosphere for the lads and a great experience. That’s what it’s about for these players – creating really good and different experiences in their journey hopefully towards the first team.”
