JAMES VAUGHAN says Huddersfield Town’s fearless approach can carry them a long way.
The 24-year-old loanee from Norwich – who manager Simon Grayson could try to sign permanently in the January transfer window – is gunning for Watford on Saturday having helped Town power to second in the Championship standings.
Vaughan bagged his second goal of the campaign in Monday’s excellent 3-1 win at Blackpool, and the Everton product is revelling in his partnership with Lee Novak as Town punt for the chance to go top at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, when two-point leaders Brighton entertain Birmingham.
“We have a brilliant dressing room at the moment and everyone is very happy,” said Vaughan, who says he’s getting fitter and sharper by the game.
“The squad includes a lot of young lads who are fearless and that can be a great asset.
“As long as we keep working hard for each other and keep moving forward, we will be all right, and I’m really enjoying my football at the moment.”
Vaughan paid tribute to strike partner Novak, who has two goals in as many games, and says Town have made a statement of intent with their bright start to the campaign.
“We have a lot of respect for teams like Blackpool, but the lads are quietly confident about what we can do,” he explained.
“We are turning in some really professional performances and have to keep doing that game by game.
“Everyone is still learning about how each other plays, but we’ve got a lot of spirit and character, a lot of quality on the ball and the work ethic is fantastic.
