🔎 Match Preview: Huddersfield Town (A)

Take an in-depth look at how Bristol City match up against Huddersfield Town as they travel to the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday afternoon (12:30pm).

🔴 OURSELVES

The Robins head into this fixture off the back of a 5-0 win against Hull City at Ashton Gate courtesy of braces from Chris Martin and Andreas Weimann and another from Antoine Semenyo.

After securing back-to-back wins for the first time this season, Nigel Pearson will be keen to make it three on the bounce as City look to end the season with some momentum.

With 22 goals this season Andreas Weimann will be very keen to add to that tally in the Robins' final game of the season.

🧳 OUR OPPONENTS

Huddersfield come into this game off the back three consecutive wins and five wins in their last six after a 2-1 away win against Coventry City last time out.

The Terriers' boss Carlos Corberán will want his side to finish the season with a win as they look to head into the play-offs in fine form.

Harry Toffolo will want to make it three consecutive games with his name on the scoresheet after scoring against both Barnsley and Coventry.

MATCH REWIND 

Result: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Bristol City
When: 03.11.20
Competition: Championship

City’s substitutes helped Dean Holden’s side turn the tide at the John Smith’s Stadium, with Jamie Paterson rifling home a later winner to overcome Huddersfield Town 2-1.

The Robins had to come from behind to earn their first win since the start of October. Nahki Wells hit the crossbar but it was Josh Koroma who tucked the home side ahead just before half-time.

But a tactical shuffle helped the Robins find a way back into the game under the Yorkshire lights, with substitute Antoine Semenyo assisting Jay Dasilva to score his first goal for the club.

Semenyo would then hit the post but Dasilva eventually turned provider in the same attack, with his cross swept home by substitute Paterson inside the 83rd minute.


👀 ONE TO WATCH

HARRY TOFFOLO

Toffolo has racked up 41 Sky Bet Championship appearances for the Terriers this season with 39 of those being starts. He has 12 goal contributions to his name (five goals and seven assists). 

The 26-year-old started his career at Norwich City but failed to make a first team appearance and instead had loan spells at five different clubs before eventually making the permanent move to Millwall in 2018. After a very brief spell with Millwall the defender made a move to Lincoln City where he featured over 70 times. He eventually made the move to the Terriers back in January 2020 and has gone on ton make over 90 appearances for the club.

Toffolo has netted four goals in his last six games and therefore will be confident that his form can secure Huddersfield a place back in the Premier League.
