Huddersfield's Jonathan Hogg taken to hospital with head injury

Huddersfield Jonathan Hogg

Newcastle kick off at Birmingham City in a 3pm kick-off, with Brighton then feature in a tough teatime clash, travelling to play (now fifth placed) Leeds United in a game starting at 5.30pm.

Hogg suffered the injury in the seventh minute and the game was held up for nearly a quarter of an hour while he was placed in a neck brace before being carried off on a stretcher.

And things got worse for Huddersfield in the second half as late efforts from Aden Flint and David Cotterill with a penalty sealed an emphatic City win.

"Bristol City were strong and we under-performed", said Wagner, whose side will again have a game in hand on the top two teams after today.

"I have never spoken about automatic promotion and we now need to use the global break to refresh and respond to this result, we are back in two weeks".

England Under-21 striker Abraham met Dave Cotterill's low cross from the right with a low first time finish from six yards to make it 2-0 just before the break.

Interesting statistics as Huddersfield dominated possession (62%), the clubs had only two corners (one each) between them and Bristol City scored their four goals from only five efforts on target. This should not happen, but it does.

"We had our opportunities, and we have be more clinical".

The win also came at the end of a hard couple of days as Johnson's father Gary, manager of Cheltenham and one of his predecessors in the Ashton Gate hot-seat, is recovering in a Bristol hospital from a heart operation, which was carried out by the surgeon father of City defender Joe Bryan.

Wagner believes that Hogg's injury had an adverse affect on his players.
