Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sunday’s football game at MKM Stadium will bring down the curtain on day 15 of the new Championship campaign. The Tigers do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team recording only one win in the previous five league fixtures, but this game could be the turning point for the home side. Hull City’s injury list, though, is pretty long, including the likes of Harvey Vale, Vaughn Covil, Benjamin Tetteh, Brandon Fleming, Allahyar Sayyadmanesh, and Billy Chadwick.
The Blues, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Bristol City, and given Hull’s shaky defence, we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s showdown as well. Defender Nico Gordon and midfielder Przemyslaw Placheta should be the only absentees in the away team, while the opposition back-line should have towering defender Auston Trusty at bay during the set pieces as he scored a brace in the crushing of the Robins.
Highlighted Player (Callum Elder):
Callum Elder is an Australia international who plays for Hull City in the League One. Elder started his youth career at Manly United, but in 2011 he was spotted by Leicester City scouts. Despite being a Leicester City player from 2013 to 2019, he did not see any game action with the Foxes in the Premier League.
Callum Elder played for the likes of Mansfield Town, Peterborough United, Brentford, Barnsley, Wigan Athletic, and Ipswich Town before signing a three-year contract with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Speaking of his international career, the pacey left-back has one cap with the Australia U20 team.
Elder’s favourite position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a centre-back as well. Elder wears the No. 3 jersey at Hull City, and he is an athletic full-back who likes getting up and down the left-hand side. The Australian player was born on January 27, 1995.
Highlighted Team (Birmingham City):
Birmingham City are a club located in the city of Birmingham, England. Birmingham City were founded in 1875 as Small Heath Alliance, but the club’s named was changed to Small Heath in 1888. 17 years later they became Birmingham and in 1943 they finally changed their name to Birmingham City.
The Blues welcome their rivals at St. Andrew’s, the stadium that was opened in 1906. Birmingham City compete in the Championship and their fiercest rivals are WBA and Aston Villa. The Blues made it to the FA Cup final twice, but they have yet to win the prestigious trophy. In 1931 they were beaten by their local rivals WBA in the title game (1-2), whilst in 1956 they were outplayed by Manchester City in the title game.
The colour of Birmingham’s home kit is blue with white stripe. Trevor Francis, Gil Merrick, Bob Latchford, Jeff Hall, Alex Govan, Joe Bradford and Christophe Dugarry are notable footballers who played for the St. Andrew’s outfit in the past.
