Bitesize Prediction: Bristol City vs Huddersfield Town – 18/12/21

Competition: Championship

Market: Bristol City win

Odds: 13/8 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a recent purple patch at the Ashton Gate, Bristol City will host Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, last seen snatching a last-gasp point away at a high-flying Hull, there is no doubt that Bristol City will be desperate to build off of those positives at the KCOM. Extending their buffer over the drop zone to eight points, Nigel Pearson’s side do appear to have put October’s nightmare behind them. Making the decision to stick with the former Watford boss, fans around Ashton Gate have seen their side lose just one of their last five Championship matchups since returning from the last international break. Smelling a chance on Saturday afternoon, the Robins should also be boosted by their recent success on home soil. Including back-to-back 1-0 victories against Derby and Stoke, Pearson’s men have collected 10 points from their last four second-tier fixtures in Bristol.

As for the visitors, throwing away the lead last weekend and watching Coventry snatch an injury-time point, Huddersfield have shown some extended issues on either side of November’s international break. Slipping their way down the Championship table, Carlos Corberán’s men have failed to win any of their last four contests, mustering just a pair of points. Likewise, it should also be noted, the Terriers have recorded just a single win from any of their last seven second-tier matchups, a run that stems back to October 30th. Now sat five points adrift of finding a route back into the play-off spots, the one-time Leeds coach will also be concerned by his side’s issues on the road. Failing to land a single away win from their last seven fixtures away from the John Smith’s Stadium, we’re backing a home win here.
