Our prediction for this Championship match:
After failing to secure automatic Premier League promotion, Nottingham Forest will be looking to clinch third place in the standings when they take on Hull City on the last day of the regular season. The Reds were producing excellent displays in April, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat the Tigers on the road. All Lewis Grabban, Keinan Davis, and Max Lowe should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
Hull City, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the season finale, with the team beating both Cardiff City and Reading at home, while losing to both Millwall and Bristol City on the road. Anyhow, the Reds want this win more than the Tigers, and we predict that they will secure a top-three finish. All Forss, Longman, and Slater are pushing for a start, while Williams, Cannon, and Emmanuel remain in the recovery room.
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 (Nottingham Forest):
Nottingham Forest, the club that are often referred to as Forest, were formed in 1865. They have been playing their home games at the City Ground since 1898 and the capacity of the stadium is 30,445. Nottingham Forest are regarded as one of the greatest English clubs as they won the European Cup on two occasions. In 1979 Forest outplayed Malmo (1-0) at the Olympiastadion in Munich in the final of the elite competition, with the team beating Hamburg in 1980 in the title game at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1-0).
Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Derby County are regarded as Forest’s bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County.
