Vaughan display pleases Grayson

9 December 2012

Huddersfield boss Simon Grayson praised striker James Vaughan after he marked on his first start in eight matches with a late equaliser in the 2-2 draw at home to Bolton.

Vaughan, on loan from Norwich, was returning after a thigh injury and lasted the pace well to earn the Terriers a point three minutes from time.

Grayson said: "We are delighted to have him back in the team. We have seen previously what he can do for us and the quality he has."

Grayson added: "If you paid money to come and watch this game I don't think you were short changed.

"The game swung backwards and forwards and I have kicked every ball and gone through every emotion. We made some mistakes but we could have nicked it at the end."

Grayson admitted he was pleased with a point after back-to-back defeats

"Bolton are a top, top team at the wrong end of the division," he said. "They have Premier League experience and we showed we can compete."

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman claimed he would not take Chris Eagles off penalty duty, despite his second successive miss from the spot.

"He showed his character by coming back to score the goal and I will leave it to him whether he wants to continue," said Freedman.

"I don't think he will give it up, but I will give him the option. He is a team player and will do what is best for the team."
