Harry Bunn hopes to get back among the goals for Huddersfield Town after a month out and has set his sights on at least double figures for the season.

The 22-year-old has been playing so well he’s been described as a ‘marked man’ by manager Chris Powell.

But as Bunn and his colleagues prepare to take on Rotherham United at the New York Stadium on Boxing Day, the former Manchester City prospect remains focused on creating chances and also taking his fair share.

“As a wide player, to get double figures in goals would be good,” said Bunn, who has six to his credit so far for 20th-placed Town.

“I’ve always had it in my game to have a dig for goal, and I like the style of football which the manager has brought to the club.

“I think you can see that myself and Sean Scannell really enjoy playing and this is a good environment at the club to learn and improve.

“I’ve picked up a lot from playing and training alongside Grant Holt and watching what he does, and the skipper, Mark Hudson, has been an influence on a lot of the young lads including myself. Just watching how he conducts himself around the training ground and on the pitch is a massive help.”

Bunn, who returned to the starting line-up in the 1-0 home defeat by Birmingham City last weekend, when Powell didn’t reveal his team to the players until the day of the game, says he is willing to adapt to combat double marking from opposition.


“It’s a massive part of being a player when you are given different challenges and you have to have more than one way of doing things,” he explained.

“The main thing, though, is helping the team and we are all looking to pick up some points in the next few games to get us quickly up the table.

“We have matches coming up against teams who are around us in the table, so they are massive and it would be great if we could start a really good run.

“Rotherham is a huge derby for us and after the result against Birmingham, we are definitely looking to put things right.

“It’s fantastic news for us that the away support is a sell-out and we obviously want to give them a win to celebrate.

“It will be an interesting game because Rotherham are both physical and have got players who can play, but we have the capability to win and we have to make sure we go there and perform.”
