Huddersfield Town manager Mark Robins revealed after the pre-season setback at Scunthorpe United on Saturday that he has not finalised his plans for the new season yet, with the captaincy issue, his bid for new signings and James Vaughan's fitness all still issues to contend with.           

Town slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Glanford Park in a disappointing performance but Robins was unable to offer any insight into who will be the club's new skipper, nor any names of transfer targets.

Meanwhile, Vaughan is not expected to line up at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United this evening and, instead, will look to return in the friendly against Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

After the game, Robins said: "Performance-wise it was a bit disjointed.

“We passed it ok at times, but when we got into the final third we had to try and break them down and they were resolute.

“They had nine men behind the ball, leaving their ‘out ball’ as one long one over the top for a willing runner to chase. That proved our undoing in the end because their goal came from a bit of decent play down their right side; they played it in and slid it across for Paddy Madden, who made a good run.

“We will certainly be better than that in two weeks’ time. Although I wanted to win, from my perspective it was about getting the players more minutes on the pitch.”
