Numbers game: Huddersfield Town (H)

We break down the statistics from City's 2-1 win at home against Huddersfield Town.

Famara Diédhiou’s first-half double helped City beat Huddersfield Town at Ashton Gate.

The striker pounced with two cool finishes just three minutes apart, as he took his tally to eight goals for the season – now six from his last seven games.

The cliché ‘a game of two halves’ springs to mind as the Terriers showed signs of bouncing back towards the end of the first half and were a constant threat in the second in their bid to get back into the match.

Their pressure eventually came fruition when Juninho Bacuna pounced off the back of a good move and set up a very tense final 30 minutes in BS3.

Huddersfield, with just two points picked up on the road since Halloween, hit the woodwork four times in this game but ultimately couldn’t find a way to equalise against a defensive-minded Robins side, with lady luck eluding them on the night.

Not that Dean Holden and his players will mind too much, as they go three points behind sixth-placed AFC Bournemouth in the table.
