Our prediction for this Championship match:
After suffering back-to-back defeats to the likes of Cardiff City and Leeds United, Hull City played out a goalless draw with Derby County on Boxing Day. The Tigers have been struggling in front of goal of late and it has to be emphasized that they failed to find the net in previous three league fixtures. Hull City are now fully focused on securing the Championship survival, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s football match against Fulham. The Cottagers did not make a flying start to the season, but they have been showings signs of improvement of late. The capital club did well to beat Cardiff City on the road in their last league game and that is giving Fulham fans a reason for optimism ahead of Matchday 25. Fulham are more of a team than Hull City and we predict the visitors will pick up all three points from the KCOM Stadium showdown.
Highlighted Player (Nouha Dicko):
Nouha Dicko is a Malian footballer who was born in Saint-Maurice, France. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a centre forward as well, started his youth career at Creteil-Lusitanos. In 2007 he was spotted by Strasbourg scouts and later that year he joined the Stade de la Meinau outfit. Nouha Dicko made his first-team debut for Strasbourg against Stade Plabennecois in September 2010, but he made no more than three league appearances for the club. In 2011 he signed for Wigan Athletic, but he did not play in the league for the Latics. Dicko was eager to change the club and on 27 January he joined Blackpool on loan. After ending his loan spell with Blackpool, he signed a loan deal with Wolverhampton, but he played no more than four league games for the Wolves in the 2012/2013 campaign. He then played for Rotherham United on loan, but he quickly returned to Wolverhampton, which was probably the best decision of his career. Dicko regained a much-needed confidence and it has to be noted that he scored 13 goals in 19 appearances for the club in the 2013/2014 season. Dicko has 2 caps for Mali.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. 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, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
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.
