Huddersfield Town are back in Sky Bet Championship action with Bristol City the visitors to the John Smith Stadium on Tuesday 3 November 2020; 7pm kick-off.

The Terriers will be looking to build on an impressive 3-0 win over Millwall at The Den on Saturday.

Town also return to home soil for the visit of the Robins off the back of two wins in the last three at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Tuesday night’s match is the first of two home games for Town this week prior to the November international break, as Carlos Corberán’s side welcome Luton Town to West Yorkshire the following Saturday.

THE OPPOSITION

It’s been a season of two halves, split by the October international break, for Dean Holden’s side as they look to push on from last term’s 12th place finish.

Off the back of a hot start to the campaign in Holden’s first month in permanent charge, the Robins went into the break as one of the Championship’s in-form outfits, winning all four of their fixtures prior to the break.

However, their campaign has stuttered since their return to Club action and they’re without a win since victory at Nottingham Forest in the final game before the break.

There’s been draws in that time against Barnsley and Swansea City, but the Robins will be eyeing a return to winning ways during their midweek trip to West Yorkshire.

FORM GUIDE

The Terriers will be looking to build some momentum following that aforementioned win at Millwall at the weekend.

Carlos Corberán’s side have won three out of five since returning from the October break, ahead of this week’s two games in HD1.

As for Bristol City, Robins come into the game off the back of a 3-1 defeat at home to Norwich City over the weekend.

Having not won a game since before the break, City are looking to pick up their first three points against Town, having experienced back-to-back losses against Norwich and Bournemouth in recent weeks.

ONES TO WATCH

Jamie Paterson

The attacking midfielder has been a mainstay in the Robins’ side this season, starting all nine Sky Bet Championship games so far this season. Within that time, Paterson has played the second most minutes of any Bristol City outfield player (778) and been a key attacking asset. The former Town loanee is tied for the most league goal contributions from a Robins player through the season’s first nine games, scoring twice and providing two assists.

Nakhi Wells

The former Town man has found his goalscoring touch in the early weeks of the campaign for the Robins. Wells has three goals through the first nine Sky Bet Championship matches of the season, finding the net against Stoke City, Nottingham Forest and Swansea City. The forward is coming to the end of his first year at the Club, having signed from Burnley back in January 2020.

Chris Martin

The forward was one of the Robins’ five summer signings, making the move to Ashton Gate following seven years at Pride Park with Derby County. Martin has played in every one of his new club’s league outings so far this season, providing a team-high four assists. He’s still awaiting his first Championship goal for City but netted for the first time in Club colours during a Carabao Cup tie against Southampton in September.

Match Reports

REPORT: TOWN 1-2 BRISTOL CITY

3 November 2020

A late turnaround condemned Huddersfield Town to a 2-1 defeat against Bristol City at the John Smith’s Stadium.

After Josh Koroma had put Town into a first half lead, late goals from Antoine Semenyo and Jamie Patterson turned the game on its head and ensured the visitors would take all three points from West Yorkshire.

Carlos Corberán made three changes to the side that impressively overcame Millwall just three days earlier in the capital.

Having come off the bench to play their part in that victory, Pipa and Fraizer Campbell returned to the XI and were joined by Richard Stearman who formed one third of Town’s back three for the visit of the Robins.

Getting underway at the slightly earlier time of 7pm at the John Smith’s Stadium, the game endured a scrappy start as both sides attempted to assert early authority.

The best chance of the opening exchanges went to the visitors and to a man Town fans know well as former Terrier Nahki Wells struck the crossbar with a looping improvised effort from just inside the penalty area.

Town’s best attempt inside the first 20 minutes came courtesy of the man that all-but sealed Saturday’s win at The Den.

Pipa drove inside from the right flank with the ball before powering a curling effort straight at Bristol City ‘keeper Daniel Bentley.

The sides continued to battle as the game reached the half-hour mark and both had efforts from range in quick succession.

Moments after Chris Martin had driven wide for the Robins, Pipa tried his luck again from the edge of the box but skewed his effort wide of the goal.

The Robins again went close just over five minutes before the interval. Zak Vyner was unmarked and connected with a corner from the left but nodded wide of Ben Hamer’s goal.

Despite the chances being evenly distributed throughout the half, it was the Terriers who had nearly two thirds of the possession just before the break. Town made it pay in the minute before the whistle for the interval, finding the opener.

Just as he did on Saturday, Josh Koroma latched on to a ball in from the right to open the scoring, this time it was Isaac Mbenza who found him with an incisive pass, with Town’s no.19 doing the rest to score his third goal of the season.

After the break, it was Koroma again bearing down on the Robins goal. This time the forward took the ball into the box himself but curled high over the bar once he had found the space to let loose.

The visitors' first opportunity to hit back came through former West Brom man Chris Brunt after the ball broke to him in acres of space around 12 yards out, but he couldn’t connect with the ball properly, miscuing his effort wide of the target.

As the Robins continued their pursuit towards a leveller, the game re-entered a scrappy phase with the minutes ticking along on a chilly evening at the John Smith’s Stadium.

But on 77 minutes, the visitors eventually found the opening needed to get their equaliser.

Substitute Antoine Semenyo slipped and looked to have controlled the ball with his hand before returning to his feet and picking out Jay Dasilva at the back post who tapped into an empty net.

That momentum pushed the Robins on to a quickfire second to turn the game around with less than 10 minutes left to play.

After the ball pinballed around the penalty area, it broke to substitute Jamie Patterson who found the net with his close-range finish.

With limited time remaining, the Terriers attempted to get back on level terms but the visitors held their shape to keep Town out and claim all three points from the Tuesday night encounter.

Next up for the Terriers is the visit of Luton Town to the John Smith’s Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 7 November 2020; 3pm kick-off.
