Striker in confident mood ahead of Bristol

James Vaughan has one focus and that is to make sure that Huddersfield Town is in the Championship next season.

Town could take a big step towards that aim when they travel to Bristol City on Saturday.

“It is obvious how big this game is for the Club,” James told “We put ourselves in a great position last week with victory over Millwall, but we need to see it through with a win on Saturday.

“We have shown throughout the course of the season that we are capable of producing performances like the one on Saturday. The main thing for us this season has been our lack of consistency. If we go to Bristol and play like we did against Millwall, I am sure that we will be fine.”

The on loan Norwich man doesn’t want to rely on teams around Town losing and would much prefer to finish the job off with two victories.

“We still know what we have to do and although we are in a good position, we have to finish it off,” he said. 

“We just need to win both of our games; if we do that we will be safe; it is as simple as that. You can look at what other teams to do, but if we win both games we will be in this league next year. It sounds easy, but if we do that it will be easy than relying on other teams.

“There isn’t any pressure on Bristol; they don’t have anything to play for apart from pride whereas for us there is still a lot riding on the game. I think we will thrive on that pressure and bring back the three points.”

Town has taken big followings to Wolves and Blackburn over the past few weeks and another is expected on Saturday.

“Over the last few weeks the fans have been fantastic both at home and away. Hopefully they will support in the same vigour on Saturday and we will give them something to cheer.”

Vaughan’s loan with the Terriers ends next weekend, but the striker’s priority at the moment is keeping Town in the Championship.

“Everyone has been brilliant with me and my main focus is on getting the Club safe,” he said. “I am sure when that is sorted we will all sit down and work out which way forward is best. The Club is in a precarious position at the moment and that is the main priority.”
