It was another difficult night in the opening round of the Carabao Cup for Huddersfield Town on Tuesday, as they were eliminated after a 1-0 defeat to newly-promoted League One side Lincoln City.
With The Terriers struggling for form at the start of the campaign, Danny Cowley’s side took full advantage, as Harry Anderson’s 55th minute strike earned The Imps a place in the second round, where they will now host Premier League side Everton.
Despite the disappointment of the defeat, there were at least some positives for Huddersfield, with one of those being debut that the club were able to hand to summer signing Trevoh Chalobah.
The midfielder, who has joined on a season-long loan from Chelsea – having previously done the same with Ipswich Town last year – played the full 90 minutes of the game at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Taking to Twitter after his first appearance of the season, Chalobah spoke of his delight at being back out on the football pitch, while promising to give his all for the club and shifting the focus to Friday’s visit of Fulham to the John Smith’s Stadium.

This looks to be a much-needed piece of encouragement for Huddersfield.
Things simply haven’t gone right at the club lately, so bringing in a player with the passion and commitment that Chalobah seems keen to show will be a welcome boost for them.
Not only will it help the club to improve performances on the pitch, but it will also provide a lift in the mood for a group of fans who have had very little to cheer about in the past year or so.
Giving them players such as Chalobah to get behind will change that to some extent, and the next step now is to convert that boost in mood in the crowd into a lift in results on the football pitch.
