Paynter progressed through the junior ranks to make his senior debut in 2001 at sixteen years of age.

He soon became a regular from 2003 onwards and he hit 14 goals in 2003-4.

A powerful forward, he finished as the club’s top scorer and player of the year in 2005 but he was subsequently sold to Hull City (along with defender Sam Collins). Paynter initially moved on loan with Hull paying £150,000 to complete the transfer in 2006.
