League Cup Rewind: Huddersfield Town knocked out

Leave a comment

Huddersfield Town FC learned the hard way on Tuesday how cruel the drop out of the Premier League can be.

Even with parachute payments, Huddersfield’s slashed budget and new-look squad came back to haunt it, as League One club Lincoln City secured a memorable 1-0 win over Huddersfield in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Harry Anderson scored the game-winning goal in the 55th minute, heading home off a cross from Harry Toffolo.
