Huddersfield Town Academy Manager, Emyr Humphreys, commented on the importance of the Premier League Cup for the B Team’s development.
“The Premier League Cup is a competition that we have placed a real emphasis on this season.
“We have used it to try to replicate some of the pressure that the players will experience when they play for our First Team, and so far they have responded really well to that pressure.
“The two performances at the John Smith’s Stadium against Watford & Birmingham City in particular were outstanding.
“The majority of our players have undoubtedly got the talent to play First Team football.
“The unknown factor is always going to be how well they can handle the pressure of the First Team dressing room and playing in front of fans for points.
“The more high-profile games we can play at stadiums and under the lights, where we can expose the young players to some of them demands, the better we can hopefully prepare them for the First Team environment.”
