Bristol City v Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield Town story posted by Andy Dixon on 28/10/2002
Third place in division two and only one point behind joint league leaders Wigan and Cardiff, Bristol City will happily welcome an underachieving Huddersfield Town to the fortress of Ashton Gate. As the only team in the league to boast that their win column shows double figures plays host to the travelling terriers fans, Town will probably be happy returning home with a point.Bristol City v Huddersfield Town

Nonetheless, the terriers are a side that can be statistically described as 'in form' as they are unbeaten in the league since September. An October league record of two wins and two draws may make Mick Wadsworth an outsider for the 'manager of the month' award but if his men were to snatch their fifth win of the season at Bristol it may launch them potential half a dozen places up the league.

However, Bristol City will definitely be Town's toughest challenge away from home in the league since the Oldham demolition. Unfortunately for the terriers Bristol City are on joint points with Oldham so a similar score-line needs to be avoided at all costs.

Last weekend, Bristol City beat struggling Peterborough 3-1 at London Road, while their last home league game saw them also win, this time 2-0 against Swindon Town. The LDV competition saw them get another victory as they eliminated Queens Park Rangers, after a penalty shoot-out (5-4) decided the winners of a goaless draw. The terriers last league game was a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Colchester, but their last league away game saw them earn a valuable 2-0 victory over Mansfield Town.

Although I will not be attending the match I will be cheering the lads on while listening to the radio. Phill will also be listening, so keep an eye out for his attempt to produce another of his comprehensive match reports based (for the first time) on radio commentary.

Andy's Prediction: Danny Wilson's men will be aiming for the top of the league and considering they have arguably the 'easiest' fixture of the leading four, I predict home passions to be high and that Town will be rolled over 5-0 (especially if Simon Baldry ends up play full-back again).
