Huddersfield won their first away game since September as they produced one of the high-scoring football results of the midweek action in the Championship. Andreas Weimann opened the scoring for the hosts in the second minute before Duane Holmes equalized before the break. Danel Sinani gave the visitors their first lead before Danny Ward doubled their advantage in the 55th minute. Weimann scored his second of the game in the last minute of stoppage time.
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “We were very poor through the middle and if you concede goals as we did you are not going to win games. At times we showed courage on the ball and caused them problems, but the defending through the middle let us down. The stoppage in the second half was the same for both teams and not a reason why we didn’t get back into the game. Our home form had been improving and we will only know how big a setback this is at the end of the season. We certainly have to defend better if we are to make progress.”
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “It was a performance of the great character. We could have been badly affected by conceding an early goal and missing a penalty. Instead, we responded positively to get a really important result, not least because it was away from home. It was good for Danny Ward to score after having his penalty saved and the character of the whole team was challenged by the way we started the game. We hadn’t won away for a while and the dynamic of the team is suddenly different as a result of this victory.”
