Our prediction for this Championship match:
Hull City and Burnley go head to head at MKM Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Wednesday’s program. The Tigers have been impressive on home soil of late, with the team beating all QPR, Cardiff, and WBA at home, while sharing the spoils with Preston. Hull City, though, should be happy with one point from the midweek clash as they take on Burnley, who are leading the chase for automatic promotion. All Aaron Connolly, Nathan Baxter, Salah Oulad M’Hand, and Vaughn Covil are sidelined with injuries for the home side.
The Clarets, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Wigan, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Josh Brownhill, Darko Churlinov, Benson Manuel, Jay Rodriguez, and Tyrece Harwood-Bellis miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
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 (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
