Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bristol City and Blackpool face each other at Ashton Gate Stadium in Saturday’s “matinee” in what is expected to be an exciting Championship game. The Robins have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Hull City, losing to Cardiff City, while sharing the spoils with Huddersfield. Bristol City are eager to keep their playoffs hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Seasiders. The hosts will be without Joe Williams, Tomas Kalas, Rob Atkinson, Kal Naismith, Tommy Conway, and Ayman Benarous in Saturday’s clash.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eager to move closer to the safe zone, but seeing that Bristol City are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that Mick McCarthy’s men are going to grab something from the match. All Lavery, Trybull, Goode, Ekpiteta, Bridcutt, Anderson, and Stewart should miss out for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Nahki Wells):
Born on June 1, 1990 in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nahki Wells is a 170-cm-tall attacker who plays for the Bermuda national team. Wells is a product of Dandy Town Hornets youth academy and he continued playing for the Bermudan side at senior level.
The experienced striker played for the likes of Bermuda Hogges, Eccleshill United and Carlisle United before joining Bradford City in 2011. After spending three seasons at Valley Parade, Nahki Wells signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Huddersfield Town in the winter of 2014. In 2017 he moved to Burnley, but he played for Queens Park Rangers as a loan footballer in the 2018/2019 season.
Speaking of his international career, Wells made his debut for the Bermuda national team in 2007. He scored his first ever goal for Bermuda in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago. The Burnley man will represent the Gombey Warriors at the 2019 Gold Cup.
Highlighted Team (Blackpool):
Blackpool FC are a professional English club based in Blackpool, Lancashire. Considering that Blackpool is a seaside town, it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Seasiders. Founded back in 1887, the club play their home matches at Bloomfield Road, which can hold up to 17,338 spectators. In the 2009/2010 season Blackpool secured promotion to the Premier League, but they were not competitive at this level, suffering relegation to the Championship the following season.
The club’s biggest success, though, came in 1953 when they defeated Bolton Wanderers 4-3 in the FA Cup final. Blackpool are well known for their orange shirts, but the dominant colour of their away kit is white. Preston are considered the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the West Lancashire derby.
Charlie Adam, who played for Liverpool and has 26 caps for Scotland national team, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players.
