Bunn previews Saturday’s game at Ipswich
Harry Bunn wants the team to maintain its recent high standards when the Terriers visit Ipswich Town on Saturday.
The former Manchester City youngster has been at the heart of the Town side that has gone five unbeaten and wants to continue the run at Portman Road this weekend.
“On a personal note things have been going really well and over the last five games, as a team, we’ve really turned things around from the start of the season. We’re on a good run at the minute and hopefully we can extend that on Saturday,” Harry told htafc.com.
“If you can put a run of games together, you can climb the table quite rapidly. If we can put another three or four performances in of the standard we have done recently and get more results, you never know where that will leave us.
“It’s very positive in and around the place; everyone is happy at the minute. There’s good competition between all the lads because everyone wants to play, but we’re all together and throughout the season everyone will play their part.”
Having signed a new one year contract in the summer, Harry has broken into Town’s First Team this season – making 12 appearances and scoring an impressive five goals to date.
He continued: “I owe the Club thanks for giving me the chance to prove what I can do. I’ve got my chance in the side this season and I’ve always believed that if that came I could prove myself. That came down at Reading, which was quite a tough game considering the run we’d been on at the start of the season.
“I’ve had quite a mixture of clubs; I’ve been high in the League and in relegation battles. Playing up a division in the Championship has been tougher competition, but so far I’m enjoying it.”
Bunn’s form saw him scoop the Blue & White Foundation’s ‘Player of the Month’ award during September (click HERE

“It’s nice to be given an award like that; hopefully I can keep my form going. Knowing that the fans are enjoying watching me play has given me a lot of confidence.”
Harry also hailed the impact that new Manager Chris Powell has had on the squad since his arrival last month:
“The new Manager has been brilliant with me; he’s really kept the ball rolling. He’s been very positive with me and all the other lads. I respect him for what he’s done in the game and I think all the lads are happy playing for him. On the pitch, we’re playing with a bit more freedom.
“I would say that this Club is more positive than the other clubs I’ve been at and I think that’s down to the Manager, as well as the run we’ve recently put together.”
The 21 year-old has recently been playing on the left of a front three, but can also operate as a more orthodox striker.
“The Manager knows I can play either out wide or up top. Obviously we’re playing with Grant (Holt) as the front man at the minute and that’s working quite well for us. I don’t mind where I play; as long as I’m in the team, I’m quite happy!
“‘Scanz’ is a great player too and he’s starting to show what he is all about now; he set my two goals up last Saturday and at the minute he’s probably one of our best players, especially going forward. You can see that the team’s understanding is growing during the last few games.
“We’ve also got players like Nahki Wells who can come in and get a goal.”
He’s now hoping that firepower is enough to overcome Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich Town this weekend.
“Ipswich haven’t won in their last few games, so I’d expect them to come out of the blocks quite quickly at home on Saturday. Hopefully we can bed into the game, subdue the atmosphere and nick something.”
