DELIGHTED Mark Robins savoured a first win as Huddersfield Town boss and summed up his feelings in one simple word: “Magnificent”.

James Vaughan sealed last night’s 1-0 win at Burnley which lifted Town six points clear of the relegation zone and up to 18th in the Championship table ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

A second successive clean sheet anchored a first win at Turf Moor in 41 years and one which filled the new manager with satisfaction.

“The three points were brilliant and there is nothing like winning to breed confidence,” said Robins, who reported no injuries.

“We were workmanlike, but they kept their discipline and shape for the most part and I don’t think Burnley created too much against us.

“I was thankful we managed to get our noses in front and hold the lead.

“Four points in two games is great and two clean sheets is magnificent – long may it continue.”

Vaughan’s seventh goal of the season came on 55 minutes and gave Town only their second win in 18 league outings – the first away from home since their triumph at Barnsley in November.

“The result will raise confidence, spirit and morale and that’s fantastic,” added Robins, who gave Theo Robinson a first start of his loan spell.

“It would be unfair to pick out individuals because from the keeper right through to the front lads they all put in a real shift. I could not have asked for more.”
