HUDDERSFIELD Town used 21 different players as they cruised to a 6-1 win in their development game against League I rivals Bury at Canalside.
Alan Lee, Antony Kay, Tommy Miller, Lee Novak, Gary Roberts and Max Leonard were on target as manager Lee Clark looked on.
Development coach Steve Watson was in charge and said: “It was about giving the first-team lads some time on the pitch with as view to the Swindon FA Cup game on Saturday.
“But we also wanted to integrate some of the young lads like Max Leonard, Matt Crooks and Joe Wright, who all did well.
“It was great for them to play alongside senior players like Danny Cadamarteri, Damien Johnson and Peter Clarke, and it can only aid their development.
“The side we put out in the first half was very strong, and we were happy with the performance produced and the goals scored.”
Lee headed the opener from Roberts’ ninth-minute cross before Kay bundled home a Roberts corner on 17.
Miller made it three from another flag kick by the winger and Novak raced onto a long ball for the fourth on the half hour.
Roberts registered with a shot four minutes later while Cadamarteri headed against the bar and Bury pulled one back before Leonard linked with Crooks to score in the 75th minute.
First-half team: Colgan, Naysmith, Cooper, Kay, Woods, Roberts, Robinson, Miller, McDermott, Novak, Lee.
Second-half team: Thomas, Cooper, Clarke, Wright, Hunt, Arfield, Gudjonsson, Johnson, Crooks, Leonard, Cadamarteri.
