A flurry of second-half goals saw AFC Fylde run out comfortable winners against Huddersfield Town Under-23’s at Mill Farm on Saturday afternoon.

Two goals from Kurt Willoughby, and a goal each from Sam Osborne and Owen Robinson saw off a young Terriers outfit.

The match was played behind-cosed-doors to give Jim Bentley’s side some valuable minutes, who haven’t played since the York City victory on February 16.

Nick Haughton and Alex Whitmore came closest to breaking the deadlock for The Coasters in the first-half, while Pat Jones and Kit Elliott forced two good saves out of Chris Neal.

The game sprung into life in the second-half, and it was Sam Osborne who netted the opening goal of the game inside seven minutes of the restart. Junior Mondal’s excellent work down the left was topped off by a tidy Osborne finish from six-yards out.

Three minutes later and it was 2-0, with Kurt Willoughby finding some room and curling expertly into the top right corner.

The third goal came from a terrific Willoughby free-kick in 83rd minute. The striker opted to go around the wall; his thumping effort giving the keeper no chance.

Although the game began to fizzle out in the latter stages, there was still time for academy graduate, Owen Robinson, to get his name on the scoresheet. After the youngster was hauled down inside the area, Robinson dusted himself down to convert his penalty and top off an impressive Coasters display.

Starting XI: Neal, Burke, Obi, Whitmore, Conlan, Osborne, Perkins, Nolan, Mondal, Haughton, Willoughby.

Substitutes: Lancaster, Byrne (80’), Gbadebo (45’), Stanley (80’), Green (80’), Robinson (70’), Philliskirk (45’), Lussey (45’).
