Speaking ahead of Saturday’s home match against Cardiff City, Harry told htafc.com that he’s happy with his performances – but can still see room for improvement.
“I’m happy with how I’m playing, but without being too greedy I would like to get a few more goals; that’s one of my jobs. I have a target – but I want to keep that to myself!
“I’m happy to already have seven assists, as it’s better than last season. That’s something I wanted to improve upon this season and so far it has been going well, so hopefully that will continue.”
His latest goal – his fourth of the season – came in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at promotion-chasing Brighton & Hove Albion; a header from Tommy Smith’s perfect right-sided cross.
“Tommy made it easy for me; I didn’t have to do much with the cross, to be fair,” Harry admitted.
“I’ve got three headers now, which isn’t bad for someone of my height!”
On Town’s improved form under Head Coach David Wagner, Bunn continued:
“Obviously the team is doing well too, although we were unlucky last weekend (at Brighton). We had played a lot of games in a short space of time and maybe we were a bit leggy towards the end of the game, but we still had some good opportunities.
“Two mistakes cost us and we need to cut them out. We knew that straight away. We came in the day after the game and looked at what we can improve upon and identified where we could have done better.
“If we take our chances, we will pick up even more points. We have the opportunity to put (the defeat) right on Saturday; hopefully we can do that.”
Harry is targeting a return to winning ways when the Cardiff City visits the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
“We’ve shown that we can outplay some good teams already this season. I watched the Middlesbrough home game from the side and we were unlucky on the day, but you can see that we control games more than we used to because of this style of play.
“In this league, winning your home games will help you stay in the top half of the table. We’ve been pretty good at home recently, so we want to keep that going this weekend.
“I’d like to think that we could finish around mid-table this season to give us something to build on next year.”
