So my friends, the time has come... for Huddersfield Town's final away game of the season.

Apparently summer starts a week tomorrow, whatever the weather forecast says.

So this is the last time that David Wagner will take his team on the road for the 2015/16 season, and Ashton Gate is the venue, Bristol City the opponents.

One of the more intriguing sub plots centres on Nahki Wells, who is two goals shy of his target of 20 for the season. Will he do it today?

While David Wagner is sticking with a strong squad - minus the injured Philip Billing and Jonathan Hogg - Bristol City manager Lee Johnson could be set to experiment.

Stick with us for all the build-up and live updates from Ashton Gate.

See you tomorrow

Right, that’s it from me although we’ll have more reaction on the site. However, I’ll be back tomorrow for the awards evening. That kicks off at 7.30 so look out for the blog as we discover who the winners of the various prestigious awards are.

Until then, enjoy your Saturday nights...

Awards evening

Ah. Yes. I’ll be liveblogging this tomorrow night!

On a serious note, it will be good to celebrate the good things Town have done this season. A bad day at the office shouldn’t make us forget that.

FT Bristol City 4-0 Huddersfield Town

The final whistle blows. Thank goodness is my honest reaction. Dreadful, dreadful second half.

Davidson shoots wide

92. One final effort from Town there but Davidson puts it wide.

Four minutes added

90. Four more minutes before we can draw a welcome line under this one.

Keep ball

85. The home fans are ole-ing as their team pass it around comfortably. Free kick near the corner flag which goes straight down Steer’s throat.

The vast majority of Town fans are still here, which is something to be thoroughly applauded.

Paterson shot

81. A chance! A shot! For Town! Paterson with it after being fed by Matmour, who has probably been the best player on show in this second half - although it’s a low bar.

Keeper pushes it away.

GOAL - Bristol City get a fourth

76. Lee Tomlin has been very good and he gets the fourth goal - it’s a beautiful goal on the half volley right into the top corner.

Town not good enough

75. Since the second goal, it just hasn’t been good enough from Town. Bristol City are pulling them all over the place here and Kodjia lets them off by shooting over the top when he should be working Steer at least.

They more or less matched them in the first 45, although the final ball was missing, but this isn’t good. A few flip flop accusations being flung around social media and it isn’t hard to see why - heads seem to have dropped.


City changes

68. The full complement of changes for Bristol City now. George Dowling, Luke Freeman and Zak Vyner on, Kieran Agard, Bobby Reid and Derrick Williams the men to go off.

GOAL - Bristol City

67. Jonathan Kodjia does make it three from 25 yards out.

Nearly three

65. The Robins have three goes at making it three but they can’t get it over the line! First a great save from Steer to deny Kodjia, who had raced beyond the defence. It fell to Reid, who hit his own man and then the bar!

Lolley off, Scannell on

Well, Lolley defended poorly for that goal but that sub was already being prepared before they scored. Sean Scannell on for the last half hour or so to try and get Town back in it.

GOAL - Bristol City make it two

63. The hosts double their advantage through Joe Bryan who beats Steer from at the near post.

Fans screaming

61. Neither set of fans happy! Town fans want a penalty when Matmour goes down, not given, Bristol City race up the other end and Mark Hudson does the old knee pass back to Steer and the home fans are raging that it’s a back pass.


Town final ball lacking

56. Town have been trying to play some nice stuff on the edge of the box but have been unable to get the right final ball to create anything like a meaningful chance.

At the other end, Bristol City should score. Pack crosses in for Kodjia at the far post and he heads back to Agard who takes too long and Town can get the ball clear.

Lynch booked

51. Now Joel Lynch is in the book for arguing with the ref. Both centre backs on a yellow early in this half not ideal.

Nearly

50. Town on the attack with Karim Matmour, but no one get on the end of his cross. Bunn is furthest forward now.

Hudson booked

49. Skipper Mark Hudson is the first player to have his name taken. Just tripped his man there.

Attendance announced

The total numbr of spectators here is 15,791 with 933 away fans. Impressive from the travelling support and pretty decent from the home fans too - the West Stand is under construction so out of action until next season.

Second half

46. Back to the action with Town now attacking the Atyeo Stand where the away fans are housed.

van La Parra and Wells off, Matmour and Paterson on

Two changes from Wagner at the break - quite surprising changes as well, particularly the removal of Nahki! Will be interesting to get his explanation for that at full time.

Town back out

We are just waiting for the hosts to join us then we will be back under way. Work to do, but easily do-able for Town based on recent form.

Finishing on the agenda

A stat to back him up - of Town’s 7 shots this half, only 1 on target so far.

Half time verdict

Town haven’t played badly here at all - t’s reasonably even with both sides having their chances but to a large extent cancelling each other out for long periods. Lots of possession changing hands!

However, Bristol City had been creating better opportunities as the half time whistle approached with some dangerous set pieces and approach play and eventually made Town pay.

Wagner’s side aren’t shy of coming from behind to take points though...!

HT Bristol City 1-0 Town

Jonathan Kodjia’s strike just before the break leaves Town trailing. Work to do in the second half.

GOAL - Bristol City take the lead

44. That has been coming. Jonathan Kodja opens the scoring with a smart finish past Steer.

Bristol City close again

42. Town living on the edge! Lee Tomlin invited to shoot from the edge of the area after a sustained bit of pressure and he’s not far away with Steer flying desperately across his goal. Just wide.

RVLP lucky

40. Hmm. Think Rajiv can count himself a tad fortunate there not to get a booking after an off-the-ball altercation with Reid. The winger hasn’t taken kindly to some constant, niggling attention, but that’s a poor reaction and there’s some handbags.

Just a word from the ref for both.
