MansionBet Match Preview: Huddersfield Town (A)

City face a Tuesday night test against the Terriers as the Sky Bet Championship rolls into November.

In partnership with MansionBet, here’s a preview of what you can expect from the fixture.

Two months into the campaign and it’s been a mixed bag of results for Dean Holden’s men. Their fine form in September rolled into October with a hard-fought win away to Nottingham Forest but that winning run was always going to come to an end.

Five games later and City are still trying to recover that earlier form after two draws and three defeats.

The last of those came at Ashton Gate on Halloween when Teemu Pukki and Emiliano Buendia spooked the Robins in the 3-1 win for the Canaries.

Head Coach Dean Holden says City must become hard to beat again, as he and his squad look to battle through and come out of what has been a tough period.

Their next opportunity to bounce back comes on Tuesday as they travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to take on Carlos Corberán’s Huddersfield Town.

The midtable Terriers currently sit one point behind the Robins having overcome Millwall 3-0 at the Den at the weekend – a good response after back-to-back defeats. And since losing three games in a row at the start of the season, including a Carabao Cup Round One exit, the Terriers have scored in every game.

But Alex Pritchard, who was substituted in the victory in the capital just days earlier, will miss Tuesday’s game against City through an ankle Injury. Striker Danny Ward may return to contention.

As for Holden’s injury list, Nathan Baker, Steven Sessegnon and Andreas Weimann remain City’s long-term injuries, with Liam Walsh and Joe Williams continuing with their respective recoveries. Alfie Mawson has undergone knee surgery but there is no current timescale on his injury.

DOWN MEMORY LANE

Bristol City 5-2 Huddersfield Town
Ashton Gate
Saturday, November 30th, 2019
Sky Bet Championship

It was a five-star performance from City who triumphed over Huddersfield Town, thanks to an electric first half where it rained goals at Ashton Gate.

The staff had called for a response following the Robins’ midweek defeat and the players duly delivered.

On-field captain Josh Brownhill started the rout before Niclas Eliasson picked out what appeared to be a Nathan Baker header, though it would officially go down as an own goal.

Karlan Grant would get one back before City took their chances, Eliasson in super form to head in City’s third before whipping in a cross for Ashley Williams to head home and send the hosts 4-1 ahead at the break.

Andreas Weimann’s tidy finish meant City would kick on in the second half, though Juninho Bacuna pulled a goal back shortly after with the Robins seeing out the 5-2 win to secure an eighth home game without defeat.
