Huddersfield Town Under 21s take on Sheffield Wednesday for the second time in just under a fortnight on Thursday and are looking for revenge at PPG Canalside.

In the reverse fixture, played at Middlewood Road, the Owls Development won with a set-piece goal from Chelsea trialist Kevin Wright.

It was only the fourth loss that Frankie Bunn’s men have encountered all season as they remain at the top of the Professional Development League Two table, one point ahead of Sheffield United and with two games in hand.

The young Terriers go into the fixture (1.00) on the back of a win after they beat Brentford 4-0 at PPG Canalside on Saturday.

Goals from Fraser Horsfall, Jake Charles, Rekeil Pyke and Jack Boyle got the Terriers back to their usual winning ways.

As the weeks have gone by, the U21s side has been getting younger and younger because of first team call ups, international commitments, injuries and loans.

In the 1-0 defeat to the young Owls, Town were without regulars Flo Bojaj (first team duties), Jacob Hanson (hamstring), Duane Holmes (calf), William Boyle (on loan at York City) and Jake Charles (away with Wales U21s).

However it has given a chance to some of the younger players to make the step up, such as 16-year-old defender Jordan Williams.

Town are aiming to make the play-offs for the fourth season running.

The top two in the North and South sections (currently Town, Sheffield United, Charlton Athletic and Millwall) go into the play-offs.

Last season Bunn’s charges were 5-3 winners at Crystal Palace in the semis but lost 2-1 at Swansea City in the final.
