Huddersfield Town conceded a frustrating defeat to Bristol City that leaves David Wagner still chasing his first points at the John Smith's Stadium.

The boss admitted Town have to be more clinica l but could still find positives from a disappointing result in the Yorkshire downpour.

Here's five things we learned from the Championship clash...

Penalties have become a problem for Huddersfield Town

Of late, there has been more time spent talking about missed spot kicks than those scored (Town’s last successful effort was by James Vaughan to clinch the 3-1 win at Millwall in February).

Emyr Huws had his attempt saved against Bristol City after stepping up ahead of Nahki Wells, who missed two penalties in one game against Fulham in March.

There seemed to be some uncertainty about who should take Saturday’s, and with both Huws and Wells injury doubts, another Town player could be put on the spot against Rotherham United.

Football David Wagner’s way is very much a 14-man game

The head coach has been quick to stress the potential value of substitutes.

The Bristol City game could easily have been swung a different way by players who began it on the bench.

Harry Bunn got Town’s goal while Kyle Dempsey had a great chance to level soon after.

Can Jonathan Hogg and Kyle Dempsey be the new Dean Whitehead and Emyr Huws?

The two deep-lying midfielders are key players in David Wagner’s 4-2-3-1 system.

Whitehead was in great form before bring sidelined for six to eight weeks by his knee injury, now Huws has a hamstring problem.

Hogg, back from a damaged thigh, made his first start in 14 games against Bristol City while Dempsey, still inexperienced at Championship level, was the replacement for Huws.

Town have to be better at both ends of the pitch

Chances are being created, but clearly more of them need to be put away.

Town have averaged a goal a game in Wagner’s four at the helm, but seven have been conceded.

Conceding two to headers from Bristol City set-pieces was a huge blow.

The John Smith’s Stadium pitch is looking okay

The surface has come in for some criticism in recent seasons.

But considering the amount of rain before and during the latest match, it held up well.

With Town keen to play a quick-tempo passing game, that is a good sign.
