JAMES VAUGHAN says Huddersfield Town’s travelling fans will see an even sharper striker at Hull this Saturday.
The on-loan Norwich man marked his first start in nine games following a thigh injury by bagging an 87th-minute equaliser against Bolton.
It was a fourth goal in 10 Town appearances for the lively frontman, with the point it sealed a boost ahead of the tough away missions to Hull, where kick-off is 12.30, and Crystal Palace on Saturday week, when the game starts at 5.20 for live Sky Sports coverage.
“They are both difficult games, but I am looking forward to them and I’m sure everyone else in the team is,” said former Palace loan player Vaughan.
“I was tired after the Bolton game, but I try and leave everything I have out on the pitch.
“I was pleased to get through the 90 minutes and now I’ll rest up and be ready for Hull.
“I’m still getting back to full fitness, still doing my thing in the gym with the physios, who have been great in helping me get back, and hopefully I’ll be sharper still by the end of this week.”

Vaughan was watched by Norwich scout Colin Suggett as well as representatives from 10 other Premier League clubs – Arsenal, Aston Villa, Everton, Fulham, QPR, Reading, Southampton, Sunderland, Swansea and West Brom – and was quick to hand the praise for his strike to Alan Lee.
The Irishman, on as an 81st-minute replacement for Lee Novak, set up the goal by laying off Jack Hunt’s deep delivery.
