Our football match prediction:
Cardiff City have been producing terrific performances at the start of the season, but they do not want to stop now. The Bluebirds head into Saturday’s football match against Derby County following a thrilling 3-1 win over Leeds United and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of the Rams. The Welsh outfit have been impressive at their Cardiff City Stadium so far this season and we predict that they are going to extend their winning run in the Championship to three games. Derby do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment as they are on a four-match winless run in all competitions. The Rams were on the verge of beating Brentford at Griffin Park in their last league match, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s clash against the league leaders. It is well known that Derby County often struggle on the travels and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Junior Hoilett):
Junior Hoilett began his youth career at Blackburn Rovers and he spent five years at Ewood Park. After ending his loan spells with German sides Paderborn and St. Pauli Junior Hoilett returned to Blackburn Rovers and it has to be noted that he scored his first goal for the Riversiders in a pre-season friendly against Leigh Genesis. Speaking of competitive games, the Canada international netted his first goal for Blackburn in a 3-1 League Cup victory over Gillingham. In 2012 the pacey winger joined Queens Park Rangers and he played for the capital club from 2012 to 2016. In October 2016 Junior Hoilett signed a deal with Cardiff City and he made his debut for the Championship side on October 14 against Bristol City. Hoilett was born in Brampton, Ontario and, as a result, he represents Canada on the international stage. He made his Canada debut in a 1-1 draw with Ghana in an international friendly.
Highlighted Team (Derby County):
Derby County are one of the 12 founder members of the Football League. However, nowadays the Rams compete in the Championship and they play their home matches at Pride Park Stadium. Derby County have won the two trophies in the English top flight (1971/1972, 1974/1975), with the team lifting the FA Cup trophy just after the World War II (1946). Derby’s main rivals are Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Leeds United, but the rivalry between Forest and Derby is regarded as the biggest one. The two teams take on each other in the East Midlands derby. The colour of Derby’s shirts is white, whilst their shorts are black. It has to be noted that the club was founded in 1884 by William Morley. The Rams competed in the European competitions four times, but they did not record a notable result in the European Cups. The club’s chairman is Mel Morris.
