Our prediction for this Championship match:
MKM Stadium will host Saturday’s Championship game between Hull City and Swansea City, the two mid-table sides. The Tigers aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Watford, but they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation. All Oscar Estupinan, Aaron Connolly, Cyrus Christie, Benjamin Tetteh, Vaughn Covil, and Nathan Baxter remain in the recovery room, but there are no suspended footballers in the home team.
The Swans, meanwhile, are on a four-game winning run in the English second tier. The South Wales outfit are eager to keep their playoffs hopes alive and seeing that they want this win more than the hosts, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Russell Martin’s troops. Experienced midfielder Joe Allen returns to the starting XI after serving his ban, while goalkeeper Steven Benda remains on the sidelines with an ACL problem.
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.
