Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football match at KCOM Stadium pits together Hull City and Nottingham Forest. The Tigers did well to beat Barnsley on the road in their last league fixture and thanks to the triumph they climbed to 14th place in the standings. Hull City aim to keep on winning and they are widely expected to grab something from the Forest game. You should bear in mind that the Tigers crushed Birmingham City in their last home match in the Championship (6-1). The Reds, on the other hand, have been impressive at their City Ground of late, but their performances on the travels leave a lot to be desired and that is the main reason why home win should be considered. Fraizer Campbell came as a substitute and scored the winner against Barnsley at the weekend and we predict that the experienced attacker is going to lead the line for the hosts against Nottingham Forest.
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 (Nottingham Forest):
Nottingham Forest, the club that are often referred to as Forest, were formed in 1865. They have been playing their home games at the City Ground since 1898 and the capacity of the stadium is 30,445. Nottingham Forest are regarded as one of the greatest English clubs as they won the European Cup on two occasions. In 1979 Forest outplayed Malmo (1-0) at the Olympiastadion in Munich in the final of the elite competition, with the team beating Hamburg in 1980 in the title game at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1-0). Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Derby County are regarded as Forest’s bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County.
