Striker looks to add to three recent goals against Man City on Tuesday

- Brentford B 2-3 Huddersfield Town B
- Kyle Hudlin scored brace against Brentford
- Striker previews Manchester City game

Having recently returned from his loan with AFC Wimbledon, our B Team striker Kyle Hudlin scored a brace against Brentford after coming on off the bench late into the second half.

Our B Team was vicotrious over Brentford at St George's Park at the weekend, with Kyle coming off the bench in the 71st minute and netted a brace to secure the win for the youngsters - read the full report HERE.

Discussing being back at Town and scoring, as well as his loan spell at AFC Wimbledon, our B Team striker said:

“I like being back, it feels like home and scoring goals is just a bonus – the lads and the coaches have really helped to settle me in the side.

“My loan spell with AFC Wimbledon was a great experience, it exposed me to the EFL, as I had only played in the National League before and gave me an insight into what’s to come.

“I learned a lot there, mentally and physically, and I think it has put me in a better mindset and stronger position to push on here.”

Hudlin reflected on the performance from the team against Brentford on Saturday at St George’s Park.

“It was a really strong performance against a structured Brentford B side; they were really organised, so we had to break lines and be brave on the ball.

“We took our opportunities well and it was a real squad performance from start to finish.

“There was a lack of opportunities in the first half, but we were clinical at the back end of the second half to secure the win – the team worked really hard and it was definitely a strong squad performance.”

Our 6' 9" striker previewed tomorrow’s behind-closed-doors friendly against Manchester City:

“More minutes in the legs and more game time at the weekend has helped us prepare for the game against Manchester City tomorrow, as well as more time playing with each other and gaining understanding of how everyone plays.

“The more we play together, the more we’ll gel and eventually we’ll become stronger as a team, rather than 11 individuals.

“At the end of the day, it will just be 11v11 and it will depend on who turns up on the day.

“Manchester City are going to be very well organised, and I see them trying to mimic the first team and get the identity through their Academy, but we’re all intelligent footballers and I feel like we’ll have to work at catching them on the counter-attack and trust in our own ability because we’re more than capable on getting a result.”

Our game against Manchester City on Tuesday 24 January will be played behind-closed-doors, so the only way to keep up with our youngsters is through our social media channels, keeping you up-to-date with what is happening during the game!
