Our prediction for this Championship match:
Hull City are running down a blind alley ahead of Saturday’s football game against Brentford and they are on a seven-game winless run in the Championship. The Tigers have been slipping down the standings week by week and they are only three points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Brentford. The hosts are eager to get back on course, but beating the in-form Bees is easier said than done. Brentford suffered only one loss in previous eleven league fixtures and they proved their worth in a 3-1 victory over Fulham at the weekend. The Bees have been in a much better form of late than Hull City and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. A man to watch in the away team will be Ollie Watkins, who scored his seventh goal of the season in the 3-1 win over the Cottagers.
Highlighted Player (Michael Dawson):
Michael Dawson is a highly rated defender who started his youth career at Nottingham Forest. He made his first-team debut for the Reds in April 2002 in a 3-2 loss to Walsall. After spending four years at Nottingham Forest, Michael Dawson joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2005 and he went on to make 236 appearances for the capital club, scoring 7 goals and quickly becoming fans’ favourite at White Hart Lane. After losing his place in the side, the centre-back signed for Hull City in 2014. The English footballer played for the Tigers in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign and despite the fact that they dropped to the Championship at the end of the season, he decided not to leave the club. Michael Dawson scored one goal in 32 appearances for Hull City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he helped the Tigers return to the English top flight. Michael Dawson made his England debut in a friendly against Hungary in August, 2010. His main position is centre back.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300.
The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition.
Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brentford’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
