- Defender discusses performance against Salford
- Young Terrier delighted for teammates
Huddersfield Town B Team defender Brodie Spencer was ‘absolutely buzzing’ to have scored his first goal of the season in the Young Terriers’ 8-1 win over Salford City at Canalside on Wednesday afternoon.
Speaking after the game, he was quick to comment on how much it meant to him to get his first goal under his belt.
“I’m absolutely buzzing!
“I’ve been working hard to develop that side of my game, to get to the next level I need to improve the attacking side, so getting my name on the score sheet – I’m buzzing!
“Now that I’ve had a header go in, I’ve got a lot more confidence to go for it at the next corner.
“I believe that I’ll be able to score again and again with people like Ben Midgley and Ben Jackson taking the corners – the quality of their deliveries is unbelievable.
“When someone is taking a corner, I want to be the one scoring from it.”
The defender went on to discuss what he’d made of his side’s performance against Salford.
“I think it was a very good game.
“I think everything that we’ve been working on over the past few months really showed in that game, especially in the final third.
“We were very clinicial today, which I think you could see, everyone was taking their chances.
“The relationship between the whole team is very strong.
“Our combination play has got much better, so I think it’ll take a very strong team to beat us.
“I also think in defence we were very solid, the back line was very well organised, our reactions off the ball to win the ball back were very good.
“Salford have a lot of good players, but the relationship between our players definitely gave us an edge.
“Overall, it was a very good performance.”
Wednesday’s game saw Pat Jones and Danny Grant continue to gain important minutes as they return from injury, as well as net four goals between them.
“I’m proud of both of them!” Spencer said.
“Both of them have had a hard start to the season with injuries, but they’ve worked incredibly hard to recover and come back.
“To see them both playing today, the link-up was unbelievable, you’d think they’d been playing together for a long long time!
“I think they’re a pairing that are going to be very exciting to watch in the future.”
The Young Terrier also took the time to explain how his recent training with the First Team squad is helping to develop him as a player.
“Training with the First Team is a completely different level.
“The tempo is absolutely unbelievable and just to be in and around those players and see what they do on a day-to-day basis is amazing.
“I think it’s very good for me at a young age to be able to do that.
“It allows me to add things into my game that I see them doing and then I can bring that to the B Team with me and help push my teammates to bring out the best in them.”
