Bristol City's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. Robins have conceded a disappointing 11 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Huddersfield's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Terriers's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 11 goals for and 10 against.

Bristol City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 20 games have yielded only 16 points. Huddersfield are holding the final promotion place in the Coca Cola League One, and have accumulated 39 points from the 20 games they have played so far.
