Bristol City v Huddersfield Town
Sky Bet Championship
Ashton Gate
Saturday, April 30th (3pm kick-off)

Bristol City take on Huddersfield Town in their final home match of the season at Ashton Gate.

All you need to know about tomorrow's opponents.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN
The Terriers confirmed their place in the Sky Bet Championship for the 2016/17 season after a 1-1 draw with Rotherham United two matches ago. Currently 16th in the league, Huddersfield can finish as high as 13th or as low as 21st depending on how their last two fixtures go. Goalkeeper Joe Murphy is ruled out until October with a shoulder injury while Jonathan Hogg (knee) and Philip Billing (calf) could miss tomorrow's clash.

MANAGER
David Wagner - German-born manager who was capped eight times by USA. His entire playing career was spent in Germany where he first went into management with Borussia Dortmund II. Wagner was Jurgen Klopp’s right-hand man at the club and was rumoured to be joining him at Liverpool but took the post at the John Smith’s Stadium instead. 

STAR MAN
Nahki Wells - Bermudan striker who started his career in his homeland and had a successful trial with Dutch giants Ajax but turned down a contract. He moved to England in 2010 to play for non-league side Eccleshill United before signing for Carlisle United a year later. His time at Brunton Park was short lived as he moved to Bradford City where he scored 53 goals in 111 appearances. His form led to a transfer to Huddersfield in 2014. Wells has 18 goals in all competitions this season. 

OFFICIALS
Frederick Graham is the man in the middle. He will be assisted by Justin Amey and John Flynn. Brendan Malone is the fourth official. 

TICKETS
Limited tickets remain available.

LAST TIME OUT
Huddersfield Town 1-2 Bristol City - City moved above Huddersfield thanks to two first-half goals from Jonathan Kodjia and Aden Flint. Kodjia opened the scoring glancing home Marlon Pack’s free kick before Frank Fielding saved Emyr Huws’ spot-kick. Steve Cotterill’s side doubled their advantage as Flint headed in Luke Freeman’s set-piece. The Terriers pulled one back through Harry Bunn’s long range strike but it wasn’t enough to get them back into the game.

LAST SEASON
Sky Bet Championship: 16th 
FA Cup: Third round (lost to Reading)  
Capital One Cup: Second round (lost to Nottingham Forest)
