Before this game kicked off, 19 places and 33 points separated third place Huddersfield Town and 22nd place Bristol City who have tumbled down the table this season. At the end of the game, four goals were the separating quantity of both teams.

A horror injury to Huddersfield midfielder was a dark period in the first-half, a sparkling first-half for the Robins who turned around at an extended first-half two goals to the good.

Those two goals alone were plenty enough to drag Bristol City out of the relegation zone but, against a top class side such as Huddersfield, there’s always the worry that a two-goal advantage isn’t enough.

The deserved win for the Robins had already seen Leeds United fans quick to leap on the 2-0 half-time score.

Huddersfield Town coach David Wagner was gracious in defeat, saying to BBC West Yorkshire Sport, that Bristol City deserved the win and that his Terriers side had “underperformed as individuals and as a group” on the night.

Result, performance and traffic bad for this Town fan.

This Town fan is quite philosophical about the result.

This is another measured view from a Town fan.

With fingers of blame being pointed, this Town fan is pointing one way, and one way only.

Savage, simply brutally savage.

This Town fan disagrees, says that you can’t single out one player from that performance.

This fan is definitely not impressed by the result, but at least his Sky box will have some free space.

Town fan Brian has a novel approach to team selection for the Terriers – not sure it’ll catch on.

Last word is succinct, and slightly sweary.
