Huddersfield Town supporters can now watch highlights from the B Team’s Premier League Cup win over Newcastle United!
The result saw the Young Terriers progress from the group stages top of Group G, having extended their unbeaten run to six games.
The game got off to a bright start, with Town dominating possession in the opening minutes.
Aaron Rowe came closest to opening the scoring early doors, breaking into the area with some sublime footwork, but saw his shot curl just wide of the far post.
Newcastle had a chance of their own in the ninth minute, as a block from Etienne Camara fell favourably for Dylan Stephenson. Thankfully, Gio Bellagambi was on hand to put him under pressure and see him set his effort wide.
Town broke the deadlock in the 28th minute! Left back Headley brought down a fantastic cross-field ball from Loick Ayina and made no mistake, shifting it onto his right foot before drilling it into the back of the net!
The Young Terriers then doubled their lead in the 39th minute thanks to Grant. The Irishman ghosted in around the back post to stoop and head home a superb set piece delivery from Ben Midgley!
The second half picked up where the first had finished, with Town on the front foot from the off.
Micah Obiero had two shots in as many minutes almost immediately after the restart. His first forced Will Brown into a low save, whilst his second was a header that went over the crossbar.
The Young Terriers came incredibly close to adding a third in the 90th minute! Jones almost found Rowe in the middle, but some desperate defending from the visitors saw them deal with the opportunity.
Having finished top of Group G, their next game will see them host Stoke City at the John Smith’s Stadium. Full details will be confirmed in due course.
