WANDERERS Under-18s got back to winning ways with a thrilling 5-4 victory at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

After a 4-2 home reverse against Hull City in the last U18 Professional Development League outing, goals from Ted Moulden, Luca Navarro, Matthew Barnes, Sonny Graham and Luca Connell secured all three points in West Yorkshire.

The young Whites started brightly with Navarro causing early problems for the Terriers' defence.

And they broke the deadlock after just five minutes when Moulden headed home from a Navarro corner.

But they were pegged back when they conceded a soft leveller.

The visitors regained the lead, however, when Navarro saw his shot blocked by a defensive hand in the Huddersfield box and the Wanderers youngster, who had netted three times in his previous three games, stepped up to convert the resulting penalty, sending the home goalkeeper the wrong way in the process.

The lead was increased when Barnes ran on to collect a through ball from Lawrence Smith to score but again individual errors allowed the hosts back into it ans two quick goals made it 3-3 going into half time.

After the break, Wanderers missed several chances to get back in front and paid the price when Huddersfield edged ahead for the first time.

But Spooner's side kept their heads up and substitute Graham equalised with his first touch.

The equaliser gave the team confidence and they pushed hard to get a winner.

And their efforts were rewarded with 10 minutes to go when Connell headed home the winner.

Coach Spooner said: "We deserved the win and the pleasing thing was that we finished the game with three under-16s on the pitch."

The U18s are back on home soil at the Eddie Davies Academy on Saturday when they host Sheffield Wednesday, kick off 11am.
