Grayson pleased with Scannell

Grayson pleased with Scannell

SIMON GRAYSON was pleased to see his Huddersfield Town side get back to winning ways with a 1-0 home defeat over Bristol City.

The match was not a classic, and truth be told, it had 0-0 written all over it.

A moment of class from Adam Clayton released Lee Novak who squared for Sean Scannell to score the only goal of the game and his first in Huddersfield colours since joining in the summer for 400k from Crystal palace.

Scannell had been selected following injuries to strike duo James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford and Grayson was delighted with his contribution.

Speaking to htafc.com Grayson said:-

'He can be what he wants to be. We haven't seen the best of him yet but he has shown glimpses of what he is capable of.

'He was a constant threat with his power and pace. He started the season but then got a hamstring injury and when he came back he wasn't able to get back in the side.

'We have worked hard with him on his fitness, which was lacking, and we're also working on his positional play.

'He played really well for the under-21 side against Leicester on Tuesday and that's what earned him his chance.'

The goal certainly seemed to give the 22-year-old a boost in confidence as he proved Town's best threat for the match. It is expected that Scannell will retain his place for Tuesday night's game against Blackburn as Vaughan & Beckford are still rated as doubtful.

Croydon born Scannell had some words for the Town faithful after the game, proclaiming '"I thought the fans were quality. To be fair I love the fans here; they`ve really welcomed me and it feels like home already. I`d like to thank the fans for making me feel like that."
