United 3 Huddersfield 1: Reds weather second-half storm to take the points

Posted by nickogs20 on September 12, 2009

Man Utd Huddersfield
Manchester United U18s 3-1 Huddersfield Town U18s
Cofie 19 Chippendale 61
Morrison 78
Hussain 81

 
United’s U18s picked up a first home win of the nascent Premier Academy League season against Huddersfield Town at an atypically sunny Carrington this morning, but only after overcoming what seems to have become the now traditional second-half wobble. In all three previous fixtures the Reds have gone into half-time with the lead, only to emerge for the second forty-five minutes a shadow of their first-half selves, conceding soon after the interval on each occasion.

The same happened here, with Paul McGuinness’ side leading 1-0 at the break – thanks to John Cofie’s tap-in – and well on top. The game turned on its head right from the start of the second half however, and Huddersfield were well worthy of their equaliser, scored by half-time sub Aiden Chippendale. The Terriers looked the more likely winners for long spells of the second half, but a Ravel Morrison goal on the counter-attack saw United regain the initiative, and when Etzaz Hussain poked home from close range just three minutes later the points were secure.

Paul McGuinness’ Under-18 side continued their impressive start to the new campaign with a 5-0 hammering of their Huddersfield Town counterparts at Storthes Hall, in a game that for long periods was a lot closer than the scoreline might suggest.
