Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Cardiff City Stadium pits together Cardiff City and Hull City, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2017/2018 Championship campaign. The Bluebirds sit in second place in the standings ahead of Matchday 22 and they aim to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. The Tigers, on the other hand, have been struggling in the English second tier this term and the team’s main goal is to avoid relegation to League One. The Welsh outfit are after their fourth consecutive win in front of home fans and seeing that Hull City struggle on the travels, we predict the hosts will cement second position in the standings. The Tigers have recorded no more than one win on the road so far this term and despite the fact that they defeated Brentford at the weekend, the visitors are unlikely to spoil the Bluebirds’ party at Cardiff City Stadium.

Daniel Danny Ward is a goalkeeper who was born on 22 June, 1993 in Wrexham, Wales. The 191-cm-tall shoot-stopper is a product of Wrexham Academy, but he did not make his senior debut for the club.

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.
