Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win at Coventry City, Hull City will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Luton Town on Matchday 39. The Tigers are on the right track to secure the Championship survival, but they can’t afford any complacency in the season finale. All Lewie Coyle, Nathan Baxter, Andy Cannon, and Josh Emmanuel are sidelined with injuries for the home team.
The Hatters, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence following a thrilling 4-0 win over Preston. Luton are desperate to book their place in the playoffs, and seeing that they want this win more than Hull, away triumph should be considered. Defender Reece Burke, who limped off with injury in the midweek win, has joined the likes of Gabriel Osho, Jed Steer, and Sonny Bradley.
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.
