Our prediction for this Championship match:
MKM Stadium will host a highly-anticipated Championship game between Hull City and Norwich City. The Tigers aim to make amends for the EFL Cup loss to Bradford City, with the team eyeing their second win of the season. Hull City defeated Bristol City 2-1 in their first home match of the process, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s clash. Both Tetteh and Estupinan return to the starting XI after the attacking duo was rested in the EFL Cup defeat, while all Brandon Fleming, Dogukan Sinik, Nathan Baxter, and Billy Chadwick remain in the recovery room.
The Canaries, on the other hand, eliminated Birmingham City on penalties in their EFL Cup opener, and they are now on a quest to record their first Championship win of the season. Teemu Pukki is back to the starting XI, while Sam McCallum misses out with injury. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides will go for a win in Saturday’s clash.
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 (Norwich):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
