By Nathan Findlay –
Huddersfield Town faced up against Premier League side Everton last night for the EFL cup. Everton kicked off the game early doors with a goal coming from Alex Iwobi in the 26th minute. The Terriers reacted to the goal and managed to equalise in the 45th minute just before halftime.
This gave Huddersfield the upper hand for the second half, with an equaliser under their belt and momentum – a great position to be in.
Not long after this, we saw Everton go down to 10 men after Moise Kean received a red card. Huddersfield was now in a position to really push for their second goal, but it just wasn’t Huddersfield’s night as Townsend found the bet to make the game a 2-1 victory for The Toffees.
Overall, I don’t think that this was a bad performance whatsoever for Huddersfield. Considering all of the players that are out for Huddersfield and the fact that they were playing against a Premier League side, a 2-1 defeat is certainly not a bad result at all.
Huddersfield’s next game is on Saturday, which will be played against Reading (15:00 KO). This match will be another close game. Reading has not had the best start to the season with three losses and a win, so with Huddersfield looking strong, this could be an excellent opportunity to get 3 points.
Huddersfield has got the capability to beat Reading, but it isn’t going to be easy with all the players that Huddersfield has unavailable at the moment. I’m sure that Carlos will have a game plan for the game to make sure that Huddersfield has their best chance at winning.
