- Supporters welcome to watch free of charge

Huddersfield Town’s Under-19 side are back in action on Saturday 29 October, when they host Harrogate Town in the EFL Youth Alliance League; 11am kick-off.

The Young Terriers continue their EFL Youth Alliance League campaign against Harrogate Town on Saturday 29 October, 11am kick-off, with the game taking place at Millers Oils High Performance Complex (509 Leeds Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ).

After their EFL Youth Alliance Cup game against Scunthorpe United on Tuesday, the youngsters will be looking to bounce back from their narrow 2-1 defeat.

George Danaher’s side won their last league fixture against Doncaster Rovers at home 2-0 on Saturday 22 October, and will be looking to build on that result on Saturday.

Supporters can attend the 11am kick-off at Millers Oils High Performance Complex before getting behind the First Team at the John Smith’s Stadium at 3pm.

Temi Okuwa previewed Saturday’s game:

Our Young Terrier started by looking back at the previous games this week and touched on the positives and negatives.

“I think we played really well against Doncaster; we played as a team and there was real togetherness - it was a good game for us.

“In the Scunthorpe game, I thought we were really flat because we have actually had a lot of games in such a short space of time, so I think we were tired with the run of games.”

Temi spoke about the training the Under-19s do and how they prepare for a game, including how the youngsters have been preparing for their upcoming game.

“We prepare for a game the same way, whether it’s a Youth Alliance League game or a Youth Alliance Cup game – it’s all the same intensity.

“Due to the volume of games, we have been playing recently, we have had fewer training sessions this week.

“Today, obviously, we had a good intense session with competitiveness ready for tomorrow’s game.”

The midfielder looked towards tomorrow’s game and what he was expecting.

“I expect Harrogate to be very physical and practically put their lives on the line to defend and attack.

“We’re up for it, but it’s going to be a hard test.

“Playing at home definitely boosts your confidence because you have the coaches and our supporters, rather than playing away where the other team has the advantage.

“Hopefully tomorrow we will have more support from the fans who come here before they go watch the First Team.”
