- Shane Marrodza reflects on Premier League Cup win
- Young Terrier happy with the development he is seeing within himself
- 18-year-old assisted the first goal and helped his team win their second Group stage game
Huddersfield Town B Team player Shane Maroodza was happy with his team’s performance as they won their second Premier League Cup game in a 2-1 victory over Watford on Tuesday afternoon.
Maroodza was happy with his team’s performance against Watford in the Premier League Cup as their 100% record in the group this campaign continues.
“It was a good game - the first half especially I think we dominated.
“We got the goals, although I think we should have had more, and we could’ve been more clinical with the chances we had - but I still think we dominated the game.
“Then obviously in the second half they got their spells and got their goal, it was just a lapse in concentration, and we needed the grit and determination that allowed us to bring it back and get the win.”
The 18-year-old discussed how he is finding playing in his position and attacking as well as his confidence in the defence.
“I’m enjoying it a lot, I love attacking and I practice a lot in training with the crossing.
“I just hope to get assists in the games, and I do, I get my crosses in.
“I feel that defending is one of our strengths and I’m always confident in the other lads to do well and then I can get the ball and drive forward for the team.”
Maroodza reflected on the pressure that the lads feel in these competition games with it being so important to them to progress.
“I think we feel a little bit of pressure, for a lot of us it’s our first time in the Premier League Cup, but it’s good pressure because as you can see, we bring it into the game and start performing really well.
“Then we have the experienced players like Aaron Rowe to help guide us along in the game – it is definitely good pressure.
“A lot of us are from the same age group and we’ve played together for the last two or three years, so we have had that connection for a while.”
The Young Terrier spoke about the improvements he is seeing in himself and his goals for the season.
“I am seeing a development in myself, I think everything I’m doing is a lot quicker and I make fewer mistakes – that’s what I think is improving my game.
“I just want to keep pushing, try and train more with the First Team and hopefully we can go far in the Premier League Cup.”
