Huddersfield Town continued their 100% pre-season form as they cruised to a deserved 4-1 win at Blue Square Bet North outfit Guiseley.

Goals from the outstanding Duane Holmes, Harry Bunn, Oliver Norwood and young Jake Charles took Town's overall tally of goals to 14 and four wins from four from Mark Robins' side's opening friendlies.

Holmes and Bunn set one another up to put Town firmly in the ascendency before Adam Boyes pulled one back for the hosts with a drilled finish.

Town responded to the setback, however, by netting another two more through Norwood, who restored Town's two-goal advantage at the end of a slick move, before Charles added the gloss late on.

Robins had warned of the test Guiseley would pose to his Town charges and stuck to his word of fielding the likes of Norwood, Bunn, Martin Paterson and Joel Lynch from the outset.

Town had to be patient in their pursuit of a breakthrough, with Norwood, Lynch, Martin Paterson and Jordan Sinnott all trying their luck before their concerted pressure finally paid off 10 minutes before the break through the diminutive Holmes.

Jake Carroll won the ball back in the left-back position before laying it to Billing, who in turn fed Bunn.

The striker let the ball run across him and drove into space before threading a pass through the heart of the Guiseley backline to Holmes, who showed tremendous composure to roll the ball past Guiseley goalkeeper Steve Drench.

Norwood and Holmes became increasingly influential as the half wore on and the goalscorer nearly added an assist after laying the ball through for Paterson but, after doing the hard work, the striker agonisingly lifted his effort onto the outside of the post and wide.

There were no changes at the interval and Robins was rewarded for keeping the XI intact as Town started the second half as they finished the first - with a goal.

Sinnott capitalised on a loose ball and rolled the ball on to Holmes, who sped past three defenders with ease before returning the compliment from his opening goal by slipping a sumptuous pass behind the defence for Bunn, who turned the ball home.

Just when it appeared as if Town would saunter their way to victory, though, Guiseley pulled one back with a well-worked goal of their own.

After the ball was threaded through to Boyes, the recent signing from Gateshead made no mistake as he engineered a yard of space beyond a static Town backline and finished with a crisp left-foot strike past the previously untested Lloyd Allinson.

But Town refused to let the setback impact on their performance and scored a wonderful third courtesy of Norwood.

Billing and Paterson linked up neatly initially in midfield before the latter sent a sweeping pass over the top for Sinnott, who exchanged passes with the onrushing Norwood.

When the ball fell back to the midfielder, he expertly wrapped his foot around the ball and sent his effort curling out of the reach of Drench and into the far corner for his second goal of pre-season.

A raft of substitutions soon followed, as Robins looked to offer the likes of Charles, Joe Wright, Sondre Tronstad, Will Boyle, Danny Carr and others a run-out and it was the former who sealed the win.

Matt Crooks - who lined up in a three-man backline - strode out of defence and managed to find Charles lurking in space on the left-hand side of the area.

The young Welsh starlet took his time and buried a left-footed effort inside the near post with aplomb to round things off.

The margin of victory could have been more emphatic, with Paterson and substitute Jon Stead going close in the second period, but all in all it was a good workout and another convincing scoreline for Robins' side, who head to Scunthorpe United on Saturday buoyed by their free-scoring run of form.
