Huddersfield Town are back on the road on Saturday 18 December 2021 when they travel to Ashton Gate to take on Bristol City; 3pm kick off.
Town will be looking to bounce back from Coventry City’s disappointing last-minute equaliser on Saturday 11 December 2021.
Bristol City come into the game having scored a late equaliser themselves against fellow Championship side Hull City, where a late Matty James goal earned them a 2-2 draw away from home.
The conclusion of last season saw Bristol City finish 19th in the Sky Bet Championship table.
Managed by Nigel Pearson, the Robins are currently on a good run, having lost only one in their last five matches.
They are also unbeaten at home in their last four, winning three of those four against Barnsley, Stoke City and Derby County.
Currently occupying the 18th spot of the Championship table, Bristol will be hoping to keep their good run going when they welcome the Terriers on Saturday.
ONES TO WATCH
Having started every Championship game this season, Bentley is Bristol City’s undisputed no.1. The ‘keeper has kept three clean sheets in the league so far this season, with two of those coming in the last four games. The 28-year-old is into his third season at the Club, having signed from Brentford ahead of the 2019/20 season. Since his arrival at the Club, Bentley has gone on to make 108 Championship appearances for the Robins so far.
The central midfielder offers solidity to Bristol City’s midfield, bringing bags of experience with him following his move to the Club in the summer. Having joined from Leicester City, James was part of the squad that won the Premier League, as well as the Championship title two years prior. So far this season, the 30-year-old has made 18 appearances, scoring his first goal for the Club in the first minute of injury time in the Club’s 2-2 draw with Hull City on Saturday 11 December 2021.
The 30-year-old signed for the Club from Derby County ahead of the 2018/19 season, putting pen-to-paper on a three-year contract. Weimann has featured in every game for Bristol City so far this season, bagging seven goals and four assists. Of those seven goals, six of them have come from braces. The Austrian international has started in multiple different positions for Nigel Pearson’s side so far this season, with his versatility alongside his goals proving a valuable asset for the Robins.
