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 training.

"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 match."

Defender Joel Lynch was withdrawn in the second half and Grayson added: "Joel has had a tight hamstring over the last couple of weeks and he felt he wanted to take the precaution of coming off,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."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
