Our football match prediction:
Burton Albion suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Leeds United at the weekend, but they did well to hold Norwich City to a goalless draw at Carrow Road on Tuesday night. The Brewers are on a three-game winless run in the Championship and it is no surprise they sit in the danger zone in the standings ahead of Saturday’s football match. In their last home game in the league Burton shared the spoils with Sheffield Wednesday and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Fulham clash. The Cottagers are determined to return to the Premier League, but Slavisa Jokanovic’s men will have to make a great progress in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal. Anyhow, given Burton’s poor form, we predict that the capital club are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s game at Pirelli Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Akins):
After making his first football steps in Huddersfield Town youth academy, Lucas Akins made his first-team debut against Northampton Town as he came as a substitute to replace Luke Beckett. However, he made no more than five appearances for Huddersfield Town as he was sent on loan to Nortwich Victoria. After spending two seasons at Hamilton Academical, the winger, who was born on 25 February 1989, joined Tranmere Rovers in July, 2010. Lucas Atkins scored 7 goals in 77 appearances for the club and in 2012 he signed a contract with Stevenage. The English footballer played 77 league games for the Boro and he scored 13 goals for the club. During the 2013/2014 campaign he was on Burton Albion’s radar and at the end of the season he joined the Pirelli Stadium outfit. Lucas Atkins enjoys playing football, but dancing is considered his passion as well. His main position is right wing, but he plays as both centre forward and left winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Championship. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition. Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight. Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League. The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
