Striker Harry Bunn is looking “more and more the part” at Huddersfield Town.
That praise comes from manager Mark Robins after the 21-year-old former Manchester City striker returned from training camp in Portugal to score and impress in the 4-1 victory against Conference North Guiseley at Nethermoor.
Bunn has had serious injury problems in the past – missing almost a year after snapping cruciate and lateral knee ligaments when on loan at Crewe – but he’s now ready to push on at the John Smith’s Stadium after signing a 12-month contract (the club have the option of a further year).
“Harry has good presence and he’s a really strong boy,” said Robins of the frontman who had loan stints at Rochdale, Preston, hometown club Oldham, Crewe and Sheffield United while with City.
“He is another one who is coming back from a really long injury absence, but he has acquitted himself well.
“Harry is working his socks off, like everyone else, and he’s looking more and more the part.”
Bunn is aiming to add to three substitute appearances in the Championship for the first team and eight goals in 11 starts for the Under 21s, who made last season’s Professional Development League II play-offs after winning the North division.
The son of Town’s senior professional development coach Frankie, Bunn joined Town on loan last November and signed a short-term deal after leaving Manchester City by mutual consent in January.
Boss Robins has called on Bunn to now turn ability into more first-team appearances.
“Harry has a lot of potential and is still only 21,” added the boss.
“He will work hard to show he is capable of forcing his way into the starting side.”
