Beckford has scored three times in eight appearances since arriving at the John Smith's Stadium at the end of September.

And the latest agreement keeps the striker with Town until 31 May.

"This decision came naturally," said Beckford, whose opportunities have been limited by hamstring trouble. "Simon Grayson and the players have shown a lot of faith in me. It feels like the right place to be right now.

"The reaction of the fans always plays a part in this sort of decision too, because they are the fabled 12th man. For the Huddersfield Town fans to take me in like they have done is a contributing factor to me wanting to extend the loan."

Boss Grayson told the club website: "I think people have seen his qualities and what he can bring to this football club when he's been in the team. He has a real hunger and desire to succeed here and do well for us.

"Unfortunately we've missed Jermaine a bit through injury, but hopefully he will get a clear run now and get plenty of games and goals under his belt."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
