Huddersfield vs Bristol City

Huddersfield Town host Bristol City at the John Smiths Stadium, 3pm, looking to bounce back from two successive away defeats with a win.

The Terriers slipped to 9th in the Championship table after the defeat at Millwall, but could climb back into the top 6 with a win today against Jon Stead's Robins.

Bristol City currently sit second from bottom of the table after taking just two points from their last seven games.

City have won just one game on their travels this season, drawing one and losing four. They have scored 6 goals on their travels, conceding 10.

Vital Quotes: Simon Grayson

"We can`t be complacent against Bristol City because they have some good players. They have scored plenty of goals this season, but they have conceded a few. I am sure they will have been working hard on the training ground to try and rectify that. It will be up to us to produce a performance that is good enough to win the game."

Match Facts & Stats

Bristol City have won only one of their last six league trips to Huddersfield, and have won half as many away league games to the Terriers (seven) as they lost (14).

Should Huddersfield lose to Bristol City, it would be their third home league defeat and equal the total they suffered on their own ground in the whole of last season's promotion campaign from League One.

79% of the league goals the Robins have conceded have been shipped in the second-half (22 of 28)

Ref Watch:

Graham Salisbury to referee Huddersfield Town v Bristol City The Lancashire whistler was the man in the middle when Simon Grayson`s side won 3-1 at Sheffield Wednesday last month, sending off Joel Lynch and Joe Mattock. Lynch has recently returned to the Town team following that suspension and injury, and Town will be hoping for a repeat of the three points awarded to them last time Mr. Salisbury was in charge

Match Prediction:

Huddersfield 3 - 2 Bristol City
