Our prediction for this Championship match:
Huddersfield Town will be aiming to build on a 3-0 win over Millwall when they host Bristol City at their Kirklees Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Terriers produced their best performance of the season at the Den, and they are likely to go for a win in the midweek clash as well. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be talented attacker Josh Koroma, who scored his second goal of the season in the triumph over Millwall.
The Robins, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from back-to-back defeats to Bournemouth and Norwich City. Bristol City obviously suffered a dip in form, and given Huddersfield’s display in the last league fixture, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at Kirklees Stadium the Terriers defeated the Robins 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Alex Pritchard):
Born on the 3rd of May, 1993, Alex Pritchard is a professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Huddersfield Town in the Championship. The English International has represented his nation at the under-20 and under-21 level, making his debut for the latter against Lithuania on the 5th of September, 2014.
The Orsett local began his club career at West ham's academy but later joined the Tottenham Hotspur academy in 2009. After establishing himself in the reserves, Pritchard signed his first professional contract with the club in 2011. However, he only ever made two appearances for the club, spending most of his time out on loan. Pritchard's first professional appearance came on the 2nd of February, 2013, in a 2-2 draw, playing in a Championship game for Peterborough United.
His primary professional goal meanwhile came playing for Swindon Town in August 2013, in a 2-0 league cup win over QPR. Further Loan stints at Brentford and West Brom succeeded his time at Swindon before he finally left spurs permanently to sign for Norwich City in 2016 on a four-year deal. A couple of seasons later, in 2018, Norwich sold the 26-year-old to Huddersfield, where he is currently on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby.
Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909.
The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
