Bristol City will host Huddersfield Town in the Championship on Tuesday evening hoping to secure their fourth successive home victory in all competitions.

Meanwhile, the visitors are experiencing a difficult spell, having lost five of the last six matches and failing to score in their previous two league games.

Match preview

Bristol City progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup for just the second time in 20 years courtesy of a 3-0 win against Millwall on Saturday.

Famara Diedhiou's penalty in the 32nd minute was followed up with second-half strikes from Nahki Wells and Antoine Semenyo to seal their place in the next round and a tie against Premier League outfit Sheffield United.

Dean Holden's side have now won three of their last four matches in all competitions, and the Robins boss is hoping that his team can finally put together a consistent run of form as they aim to push into the playoffs.

Bristol City have been victorious in six of their last eight meetings with Huddersfield, winning each of their previous four home matches against them by an aggregate score of 14-2.

The Robins, who currently have a game in hand on sixth-placed Bournemouth, could move within three points of the Cherries with a victory on Tuesday.

Huddersfield suffered their fourth successive defeat in all competitions on Wednesday night as they lost 1-0 at home to Millwall.

After a five-match winning streak at the John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield have lost their last two home league matches either side of a defeat at Watford, which has seen Carlos Corberan's men slip to 14th in the table.

The Terriers currently sit 11 points behind the top six, and Corberan will feel that his side need to put together a good run of form quickly if they are to have any chance of sneaking into the playoffs.

Huddersfield's away form has been one of their issues this campaign, having won only two of their 12 Championship matches on the road; the West Yorkshire outfit head to Bristol having also lost their last four visits to Ashton Gate.

Securing a much-needed three points on Tuesday could push the Terriers into the top half of the table, three points behind Stoke City in eighth who they face on Saturday.

Team News

Bristol City boss Holden could stick with the 4-4-2 formation that he has used in each of the last five matches in all competitions.

Defender Zak Vyner is likely to keep his place in central midfield and play alongside Adam Nagy, who could return to the side at the expense of Tyreeq Bakinson.

Diedhiou, who has scored four goals in the last six matches, is set to remain in the starting lineup with either Wells or Chris Martin up front.

Experienced midfielder Jonathan Hogg is expected to be sidelined for the rest of the month after sustaining a hip injury, while Rarmani Edmonds-Green (knock), Adama Diakhaby (foot) and Josh Koroma (hamstring) all remain unavailable for selection.

Winger Rolando Aarons is set to keep his place in the side up front with Isaac Mbenza and Fraizer Campbell.

Bristol City possible starting lineup:
Bentley; Hunt, Kalas, Mawson, Rowe; Semenyo, Vyner, Nagy, Palmer; Diedhiou, Wells

Huddersfield Town possible starting lineup:
Schofield; Keogh, Vallejo, Sarr; Pipa, Bacuna, O'Brien, Toffolo; Mbenza, Campbell, Aarons

We say: Bristol City 1-0 Huddersfield Town

Bristol City will fancy their chances against an out-of-form Huddersfield side and even through the visitors may be difficult to break down, the Robins should have enough firepower to secure a narrow victory on Tuesday.
