Huddersfield Town's James Vaughan has been rewarded for his fine April form by being named the npower Championship Player of the Month.

The striker's five goals in the month, including a hat-trick in the 3-1 win at Bristol City, were integral in helping the Terriers avoid the drop.

It was also his all-round play which caught the eye, leading the line superbly and forming a prolific strike partnership with Jermaine Beckford.

Commenting from npower, Partnership and Sponsorship Manager Katy Thomas said: "I'm sure there are a few Huddersfield Town fans hoping to see James Vaughan again next season."
