Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bolton did well to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough, with the team beating Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in their last game of the year. The Trotters have been improving their game week by week and a win over Hull City should see them escape the relegation zone. Gary Madine scored his eighth goal of the season in the 1-0 win over the Blades, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Hull City, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Fulham in their last league fixture, with the team extending their winless run in the Championship to four games. Both sides are eager to pick up all three points from Monday’s football match at Macron Stadium and a lively contest is on the cards. Hull City outclassed Bolton 4-0 in the first half of the season, but we predict the two teams are going to play out a draw this time out.
Highlighted Player (Sammy Ameobi):
Sammy Ameobi is the younger brother of a famoust Newcastle United player Shola. Sammy is a product of Newcastle United football academy as well and he scored two goals in 56 appearances for the first team. The pacey attacker played for the likes of Middlesbrough, Cardiff City and Bolton Wanderers on loan in the past before signing a permanent deal with the Trotters on July 14, 2017. Sammy Ameobi was born in Newcastle upon Tyne on May 1, 1992, but he has two caps for Nigeria U20 team. The left-footed footballer played for the England U21 team as well, but he has yet to make his senior debut for the Three Lions. Ameobi’s main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of playing as a winger as well. Sammy Ameobi made his Bolton debut on September 3, 2016 against Southend and it has to be noted that he scored two goals in 20 appearances for the club in the 2016/2017 League One campaign. At the end of the season Bolton were promoted to the Championship.
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.
