Hibs‘ Development squad went toe to toe with English Championship side Huddersfield today, losing 2-0 to the EFL outfit.
A young Hibs team with the likes of Fraser Murray, Jamie Gullan and Josh Campbell travelled to play a youthful Huddersfield side. In recent matches, Hibs have beaten Celtic’s Reserves and thumped St Mirren’s in cup action.
A trialist was also in action for the young Hibees. Reginald Mbu Alidor has been on trial recently at Easter Road but Jack Ross confirmed at the weekend that he didn’t believe anything was going to happen on that front.
12 minutes into this clash and Hibs conceded the first of the match, with keeper Paddy Martin beaten with a far post effort.
Gullan tested the opposing keeper with a free kick shortly after before Innes Murray missed a chance after the half hour mark.
Huddersfield added a second just over 20 minutes from time to hand the young Hibees an uphill task. They couldn’t get back in the game and eventually succumbed to defeat.
Hibs’ youthful team will be disappointed with the result but it’s good for their development to test themselves against opposition they don’t usually come up against.
