Preview: Huddersfield (A)

City are looking to bounce back in their Tuesday night fixture against Huddersfield Town.

Danny Cowley's side play the hosts this week and find themselves fighting to avoid relegation, after a difficult beginning to the season which started with a nine-game league run without a win.

City have lost their last two games and so travel to Yorkshire with aim of putting things right. They remain in touching distance of the play-offs too and could go joint-sixth by the end of the night with Preston North End and Nottingham Forest, should results go their way.

Word from the camp

Memorable match

City 5-2 Huddersfield

Ashton Gate
Scorers: Brownhill 11, Kongola (30, OG) Eliasson 36, Williams 40, Weimann 49, 
Att: 20,762

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 may 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 got Lee Johnson’s side off the mark 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.

City starting XI: Bentley, Williams, Hunt, Rowe, Baker, Ádám Nagy, Massengo, Brownhill, Eliasson, Diédhiou, Weimann
