Our prediction for this Championship match:
MKM Stadium will host Saturday’s Championship game between Hull City and Bristol City. The Tigers suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Peterborough in their last warm-up game, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. The club chiefs were very active on the Turkish Super Lig market as they signed the likes of Ozan Tufan, Dogukan Sinik, and Allahyar Sayyadmanesh, with Jean Michael Seri, Oscar Estupinan, Benjamin Tetteh, and Tobias Figueiredo joining the club as well.
However, key attacker Keane Lewis-Potter, who joined Brentford in the summer transfer window, could be sorely missed in the upcoming season. The Robins, on the other hand, proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend; therefore, we predict that they will hold Hull City to a draw on day 1. New signings Kal Naismith, Kane Wilson, and Mark Sykes are eyeing their Bristol City debuts.
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 (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby.
Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909.
The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
