Huddersfield Town: Grayson praises Lee Novak attitude

Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson has praised the attitude of striker Lee Novak.

The 24-year-old scored twice, including a last-minute equaliser, to earn Town a point against Blackburn on Tuesday.

"He was struggling from the weekend and he hasn't trained since Saturday," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

The referee got the penalty decision totally wrong and I thought he was very poor tonight

"Jermaine Beckford failed a fitness test and James Vaughan wasn't in contention so we had to patch him up and he worked extremely hard."

He added: "He got his rewards for being in the right place at the right time."

Novak had failed to score in his previous six games, a run dating back to the 3-1 win over Blackpool on 24 September.

Grayson was delighted to salvage a point after a contentious penalty looked set to give Rovers a first win under Henning Berg.

"It feels like a victory rather than a draw when you score that late on in a game," he continued.

"Full credit to the players because they kept going and showed a desire to get something out of the game.

"The referee got the penalty decision totally wrong and I thought he was very poor."
