Irishman scored brace against Scunthorpe United

- Conor Falls delighted to be on scoresheet
- Striker helped his side to EFL Youth Alliance League victory
- Northern Irishman on how his side have improved

Huddersfield Town Under-19 forward Conor Falls was delighted to have secured a brace in the Young Terriers' 2-0 EFL Youth Alliance League win over Scunthorpe United on Saturday morning.

Speaking after the game, Falls gave his verdict on the match.

“It went to plan. Everyone in the team did very well throughout the 90 minutes. From the warm-ups, everyone was just on it. Everyone was passing the ball really fast, and I just went into the game and it all worked really well.”

The striker scored both goals for his side, something he’s very happy with!

“I’m very happy with two goals. They helped us win the game, but everyone did very well to help with them.

“The first goal was a really well-worked team goal. It was a ball from Donay O’Brien-Brady and then I did a 1-2 with Fope Deru, which worked well.

“For the second goal, Joseph Johnson came on and he did really well.

“It was good cross from him and then I finished it with my right foot. The first was my favourite because it was a team goal!”

Last time out against Scunthorpe, things didn't go to plan for the Young Terriers. The Northern Irishman discussed what he thinks changed this time around.

“We’ve improved a lot as a team – physically and technically. We felt more confident on the pitch and more ready to go. We know each other better now as well, and that definitely rubbed off on the pitch.

"I think we passed the ball around very fast compared to the last time we played them. We were a lot better and a lot cleaner, especially with our 1-2 passes in the first half.

“We defended very well when they pushed us in the second half.

“Altogether, we worked to deserve the three points.”
