James Vaughan was able to work hard on his return to training and Huddersfield Town boss Mark Robins reported: “That’s good news.”

The leading scorer has been troubled by injury and illness and, having hit 12 goals earlier in the campaign, has been limited to just four starts and three substitute appearances since the turn of the year.

 

It’s meant his eagerly-anticipated partnership with record £1.3m signing Nahki Wells has had little chance to establish and, in the meantime, Town have been treading water to a certain extent in the Championship, collecting 15 points from the last 16 matches.

Robins says there is a positive mood at PPG Canalside ahead of the visit of Bolton Wanderers to the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday and Vaughan’s contribution has only added to the feelgood factor.

“James has worked hard and that’s good news,” said Robins, whose side are looking to complete a double over the Reebok Stadium side
having beaten them 1-0 back in December.

“It’s good to have him back on the training ground and we know we need to build him up

“The plan is to get as much into him as possible and get him back to a level of fitness where he can
sustain his involvement.

“If that means through to the end of the season then happy days and, as I say, he’s worked hard.”

Bolton, who have former Town loan players Jermaine Beckford, Neil Danns and Lukas Jutkiewicz in their squad, have extended the loan of Aston Villa full-back Alan Hutton to the end of the season.

Doogie Freedman’s side have lost only once in their last nine outings.
