Bristol City predicted XI vs Huddersfield: Liam Manning could make key change for Championship clash - gallery

The Robins travel to face Huddersfield on Saturday

Bristol City will seek to avenge back-to-back defeats when they travel to EFL Championship strugglers Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Robins go into the match off the back of a dramatic defeat to Norwich City last time out when despite leading at the break, they conceded a 95th-minute goal to go down 2-1 losers.

A win for Liam Manning's men could propel them up as much as six places and into the top half of the table, but it will be no easy task against a resolute Terriers side.

Darren Moore's outfit are unbeaten in their last three matches and will no doubt be difficult to break down.

Huddersfield have recorded less than 30% possession in all of their last six matches, which means the impetus will likely be on City to force the issue.

In the past, the Robins have struggled to be successful when being able to control the ball. But, with Manning's more patient, possession-based approach starting to become evident in recent matches, Saturday will provide a good test to see where City are at in their transition.

Tommy Conway could prove to be the key man this weekend, the striker hasn't been as clinical as he would've liked of late, but he is creating plenty of chances for himself and will surely begin to find the back of the net more regularly soon.

Last season, this fixture ended goalless, and it could be a game of fine margins once more this time around.

Here is how I think Manning will set up against the Terriers...
