Town shirt against Sh­effield Wed­nes­day at Mid­dle­wood Road where he played 45 min­utes for the Un­der 23 side.

Town were 1-0 down at the break when Palmer was sub­sti­tuted for Olly Dyson, and the Terriers could not fight their way back for a point in Sh­effield even­tu­ally los­ing 2-0 to the league lead­ers.

Joe Lol­ley also got min­utes for the de­vel­op­ment squad, play­ing 65 min­utes be­fore be­ing sub­sti­tuted.

The de­feat means Town’s U23s stay at the foot of the Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment League ta­ble, a point be­hind Burn­ley and Crewe Alexan­dra’s Un­der 23s.

Ac­cring­ton boss John Cole­man has warned his side still have it all to do in their FA Cup first-round re­play against Guise­ley tonight.

A sec­ond-round trip to Mans­field is still up for grabs af­ter Ac­cring­ton were held to goal­less draw at Nether­moor and, de­spite now hav­ing home ad­van­tage, Cole­man is tak­ing noth­ing for granted.

“We will be favourites and some peo­ple may think it’s a fore­gone con­clu­sion and that they had their chance at home,” Cole­man told Ac­cring­ton’s of­fi­cial web­site. “But it doesn’t hap­pen like that, I know that.

“We have to be bet­ter than we were at Guise­ley. But there is no guar­an­tee we will be and we have to strive to be bet­ter and play our game.

“Guise­ley didn’t sur­prise us at their place. They were big and strong, they worked hard and it was a dif­fi­cult game.”

Guise­ley owner Steve Parkin out­lined am­bi­tious plans to reach the Foot­ball League within three to five years in an open let­ter in Septem­ber when ap­point­ing ex­pe­ri­enced man­ager Paul Cox.
