Friday, 21 February 2020
Goals: Millar (15′), Van den Berg (32′), Hardy (90+4′)
On a wet and windy night in Kirkby, the Reds took the lead through striker Liam Millar early on as he poked home from close range.
The lead was doubled before the break when Dutch centre-back Van den Berg notched his first goal for the club since his move last summer with a composed finish.
After the break, Adam Lewis almost got himself on the scoresheet shortly after coming on as a sub, with the left-back having been absent since making his debut for the first-team against Shrewsbury with a small knock.
Jack Bearne impressed in midfield, keeping things tidy and he went close with a great effort which the Terriers’ ‘keeper did well to keep out.
Joe Hardy added the icing on the cake in stoppage time to grab his fourth goal since joining the Reds in January after a lovely team move.
Liverpool U23s: Kelleher, Hoever, Boyes, van den Berg, Gallacher, Clarkson, Dixon-Bonner (Lewis 68′), Cain, Bearne, Millar, Longstaff (Hardy 78′)
Subs not used: Winterbottom, Savage, Hill
