Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game between Blackburn Rovers and Hull City will bring down the curtain on the Championship round 42. The Riversiders do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league matches. Blackburn have been struggling at the back of late, but they are still sitting in the playoffs berth. Since Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, home win should be considered. All Bradley Dack, Jack Vale, Daniel Ayala, and Clinton Mola should miss out with injuries.
The Tigers, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Millwall, but seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s encounter. Adama Traore is pushing for a start after scoring the winner on Monday, while all Baxter, Christie, Connolly, Covil, Estupinan, and Tetteh are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Bradley Dack):
Born in Greenwich, England on December 31, 1993, Bradley Dack is a midfielder who plays for Blackburn Rovers in the Championship. Bradley Dack began his youth career at Charlton Athletic back in 2005 and five years later he moved to Corinthian. However, the English footballer started his senior career at Gillingham, making his league debut against Bradford City on August 18, 2012. 20 days later he scored his first senior goal as he found the net in Football League trophy clash against Crawley Town.
Before joining Blackburn Rovers on June 27, 2017 Bradley Dack played four games on loan for Braintree Town, scoring one goal in those league games. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is used as both right and left midfielder as well. Dack once described himself as “free role behind two strikers”.
The Blackburn Rovers midfielder often finds the net and it has to be noted that he scored 16 goals in 36 appearances for the Riversiders in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450.
Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
