U18s 0-2 Huddersfield - report

24 November 2014

United's U18s slipped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Huddersfield Town at the Redtooth Academy on Saturday.

Despite a bright start from the Blades, two goals later in the first-half for the Terriers put them in a commanding position, one they didn't looking like relinquishing after the break.

The hosts should have been three goals to the good in the first 15 minutes; Cockerline saw a header from point blank range saved after Adebowale had flicked on a corner from the right.

Then twice in as many minutes Calvert-Lewin had chances to opening the scoring, he should have scored when through on goal, before a smart save denied him with a long-range free-kick.

Town responded and BOYLE slid them in front, beating the advancing Eastwood to a through ball, before COUGHLAN made it two against the run of play from the penalty spot after a harsh decision went against Ioan Evans.

The second-half saw Huddersfield take control of the game and despite their best efforts the home side rarely looked like getting back into the game.

Blades: Eastwood, Cheeseman, Brown, Gordon, Evans, Adebowale, Heh, Ramsey (Wright 62), Cockerline (Slew 62), Calvert-Lewin, Kedman (Hinchliffe 62).
Unused: Giraud-Hutchinson, Ramsdale.
