Huddersfield vs Bristol City predictions: Terriers to strike down Robins
- Huddersfield have lost just one of their last seven home matches
- Bristol City have taken just one point away from home of the last 12 on offer
- Recommended bet: Huddersfield to win
Huddersfield will be hoping to climb away from relegation danger when they welcome Bristol City to the John Smith's Stadium for Championship action on Saturday.
The Terriers are one place and four points above the bottom three heading into this weekend's fixtures and a victory on home turf could see them jump up five places in the table, if results elsewhere go their way.
As for the Robins, they are seven places above their hosts and find themselves five points off the play-off positions, but they head into this clash on a two-game losing run.
Huddersfield have a lengthy injury list that includes Ben Wiles, Josh Ruffels, Kian Harratt, Kyle Hudlin and Oliver Turton, who are all expected to be back towards the end of December.
Patrick Jones, Lee Nicholls and Jack Rudoni also remain on the sidelines, though the trio are closing in on a return to fitness.
City also have a busy treatment room and they will be without the services of Haydon Roberts, Andy King, Nahki Wells, Rob Atkinson and Ayman Benarous due to injury, while Ross McCrorie is absent through illness.
Huddersfield have lost just one of their last seven home matches, winning two and drawing the other four.
The Terriers drew 1-1 at Swansea last time out to extend their unbeaten streak to three matches, a result which also stretched their scoring run to three consecutive games.
City have lost their last two outings heading into this fixture, going down 1-0 at Southampton and then losing 2-1 at home to Norwich.
The Robins are without a win in their last four away assignments, taking just one point during this barren spell and failing to score in three of those.
Huddersfield have shown some form over the past few weeks and Darren Moore is finally starting to get a tune out of his side, who have been particularly difficult to beat at home.
The Terriers' form at the John Smith's Stadium bodes well ahead of Saturday's encounter and they can grab a crucial three points that will boost their survival hopes and also put them just two points behind their visitors.
The Robins are under new direction in the shape of Liam Manning, who went unbeaten in his first two matches in charge before suffering two defeats in a row to blot his copybook.
It feels like Manning is still figuring out what his best starting XI is and he may struggle to take a positive result from this trip to West Yorkshire.
