Our prediction for this Championship match:
Ashton Gate Stadium will host Tuesday’s Championship game between Bristol City and Huddersfield Town. The Robins aim to build on the FA Cup win over Millwall, but they will have to do it without Baker, Dasilva, O’Dowda, Paterson, Sessegnon, Walsh, Watkins, Weimann, and Williams who remain sidelined with injuries. Baldwin has been tested positive for coronavirus. The Terriers, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Millwall in their last league match.
Huddersfield Town are on a four-game losing run in all competitions, but given the number of absentees in the home team, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Eiting, Elphick, Koroma, Schindler, and Stearman are all out of contention with injuries for the visiting team. In the first half of the season Bristol City defeated Huddersfield Town 2-1, but share of spoils is on the cards this time out.

Highlighted Team (Huddersfield):
Back in 1926 Huddersfield Town became the first English club to win three straight domestic trophies. Since 1908 the Terriers were playing at Leeds Road, but in 1994 John Smith’s Stadium became home of Huddersfield Town. The club play in the English second tier (Championship) and the colour of the their home kit is blue and white (stripes).
Huddersfield Town were founded in 1910 and just three years later they entered the Football League. In 1926 the Terriers won their last domestic trophy, but they did well finishing runners up in the FA Cup 1920. The club’s biggest rivals are Leeds United and it has to be noted that Huddersfield Town have better head-to-head record of the two teams.
Bradford City are considered Huddersfield’s local rivals as well, but there are small rivalries with Barnsley, Halifax Town, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic. The club’s chairman is Dean Hoyle.
