Our prediction for this Championship match:
Ashton Gate Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Bristol City and Hull City, the two mid-table sides. The Robins have been in a fine form of late, and a win over Hull City will see them keep their playoffs hopes alive. Experienced forward Nakhi Wells is pushing for a rare start after scoring a late equalizer against Sunderland, while Tomas Kalas should replace injured defender Robert Atkinson in the starting XI. The likes of Kal Naismith, Kane Wilson, Tommy Conway, and Ayman Benarous miss out with injuries as well.
The Tigers, on the other hand, failed to win the previous three league fixtures, and given their difficulties in front of goal, home win should definitely be considered. All Aaron Connolly, Adama Traore, Nathan Baxter, Salah Oulad M’Hand, and Vaughn Covil are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the away team. In their last meeting at the venue Bristol City crushed Hull City 5-0.
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 (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.
