Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, Hull City will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Cardiff City in the Championship round 30. The Tigers quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Sheffield United, and, as a result, they are safe for now. January signing Karl Darlow is likely to make his debut against the Bluebirds, while Benjamin Tetteh is banned for the match.
All Salah Oulad M’Hand, Dimitrios Pelkas, and Vaughn Covil are sidelined with injuries. The Bluebirds, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Millwall and Luton Town, but seeing that Hull City are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Liam Rosenior’s troops. All Adams, Collins, and Romeo are sidelined with injuries, speaking of 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 (Cardiff):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
