New setback for Terriers ace

Huddersfield striker Jermaine Beckford could miss out for

another week when his side face Bolton next Saturday after being

sidelined for four matches due to a hamstring injury.

The Terriers had been hoping Beckford would return in time to

face former club Leeds in their West Yorkshire derby defeat, but

the Leicester forward, on loan until January, sat out his fourth

successive match and it was strike partner James Vaughan who

returned to the bench following his thigh injury.

“He’s making progress,” said manager Simon Grayson. “Vaughany

was obviously closer to full fitness, but we were only going to get

25 minutes out of him because he’s just come back into


“It’s nice to have him back and it’s nice to have (Sean)

Scannell back.

“We could sit here and make excuses that we’ve had (Keith)

Southern out, Beckford out, but other players have had

opportunities to produce and too many didn’t deliver performances

as individuals and collectively as a team to win a football


Defender Joel Lynch was withdrawn in the second half and Grayson

added: “Joel has had a tight hamstring over the last couple of

weeks and he felt he wanted to take the precaution of coming off,

so that was a bit of a blow because he’s been a good player for us

so far.”
