Huddersfield Town were taken apart by a resurgent Bristol City side at Ashton Gate tonight.
Less than 10 minutes into the match Jonathan Hogg was taken off the field on a stretcher after a chilling collision with captain Mark Hudson and after that Town never got going.
Tomlin capitalised on an awful mistake by Hudson to make it 1-0, before Tammy Abraham stole in to make it two just before half time.
The rout was completed from the penalty spot by David Cotterill after an Aden Flint flick had made it three.
