Our prediction for this Championship match:
Hull City will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Wolverhampton and QPR when they welcome Bolton Wanderers at their KCOM Stadium. The Tigers are determined to return to the English top flight, but they need to improve their game if they are to meet the goal. Hull City obviously struggle at the back and that is the main reason why home win should not be considered. Bolton Wanderers have yet to record a win in the 2017/2018 Championship campaign. The newcomers head into Friday’s football game following a 2-1 loss to Derby County and, no doubt, coaching duo Phillips – Parkinson is under big pressure at the moment. Seeing that both teams are desperate to return to winning ways, a lively contest appears on the cards and we predict that the two sides are going to play out a high-scoring draw at KCOM Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Moses Odubajo):
Moses Odubajo is a professional footballer who plays for Hull City. Odubajo is a right winger, but he is capable of playing at right-back as well. He made 42 appearances for Hull City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to the Premier League, although he then suffered a serious injury next summer. Moses began his career at Leyton Orient and after spending several seasons on loan at St Albans City, Sutton United and Bishop’s Storford, in 2014 he signed a three-year deal with Brentford for an undisclosed fee. Odubajo scored 3 goals in 45 games for Brentford in the 2014/2015 Championship campaign. At the end of the season he signed a £3.5-million-worth deal with Hull City. Odubajo was born in Greenwich on 28 July, 1993 and he made a total of six appearances for England U-20 team. On 4 December, 2014 he was reportedly invited to the Nigeria U23 training camp, but opted against switching his allegiance to the Super Eagles.
Highlighted Team (Bolton Wanderers):
Bolton Wanderers were formed as Christ Church Football Club back in 1874 and three years later they adopted their current name. The Trotters currently compete in the Championship and they play their home games at Macron Stadium, which was opened in 1997.
Speaking of the club’s trophies, Bolton Wanderers won the FA Cup on four occasions (1923, 1926, 1929 and 1958), but they have yet to win the Premier League title. The Trotters were producing splendid displays in the 2003/2004 Premier League campaign, with the team finishing the season in eighth position in the standings, which is regarded as the club’s best result in the English top flight.
Bolton did well to reach the UEFA Cup knockout stages in the 2007/2008 season; the English outfit eliminated Atletico Madrid in the two-legged tie, but Sporting Lisbon eventually proved to be a big catch for the Trotters.
Nigeria international Jay-Jay Okocha is one of the most notable footballers who played for Bolton and he scored 14 goals in 124 appearances in the league for the club. Bury are considered the club’s fiercest rivals.
