Vaughany can’t wait to play in front of the cameras

Town striker James Vaughan is looking forward to showing everyone what he and his teammates are about when they take on Blackpool in front of the Sky cameras.

Friday night is the Terriers' first live Sky game of the season and Vaughan can’t wait to take on high-flying Blackpool.

“We want to show everyone what we can do in front of the TV cameras and we will go out there with a lot of confidence, hoping to get the three points,” he told

“It is a very tough league and Friday night will be a difficult match,” he continued. “Blackpool has a good squad of players; Tom Ince has shown regularly that he is high quality.”

Vaughan has nine goals in ten games in all competitions, with his latest strike coming against Charlton last week.

“I just want to, and need to, continue working hard and hopefully more goals will come,” said the former Everton striker.

“I didn’t set myself any targets prior to the season; it is all just about working hard. Most of my goals have been one touch finishes, which highlights the quality that has been played in to me. I am confident that we have enough in our squad to be competitive. If you look around we have got some quality players; in my opinion the likes of Adam Clayton and Adam Hammill are two of the better midfielders in the Championship.

“Also, the guys at the back have been superb and that is why we have one of the best defensive records in the league. Everyone is doing their job and if we continue then we might be in with a chance come the end of the season. 

“The team has made a solid start and we have amassed a decent amount of points. We are taking every game one at a time and not getting too far ahead of ourselves.” 

The 25 year-old didn’t enjoy sitting out Tuesday night’s game, but admitted that it was a good opportunity for Mark Robins to have a look at some of Town’s younger talent. One of those players was fellow striker Daniel Carr, who Vaughan believes can go a long way in the game.

“He has a lot of promise. He has shown in the U21s that he can scores goals and he puts plenty of chances away in training. If he works hard, I am sure he will go a long way.”
