Our football match prediction:
Millwall welcome Norwich City at the Den on day 5 of the 2017/2018 Championship campaign. The newcomers are desperate to escape the relegation zone and it remains to be seen if they are capable of recording their first win of the season on Saturday afternoon. The Lions proved their worth in a goalless draw with Bristol City at the weekend and we believe that the time has come for the capital club to return to winning ways. The Canaries experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Aston Villa at the weekend and seeing that their performances leave a lot to be desired, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game. You should bear in mind, though, that the Canaries emerge triumphant in each of their last three meetings with the Lions in the Championship.
Highlighted Player (Calum Butcher):
Calum Butcher s an English midfielder, who was born in Rochford on February 26, 1991. Butcher played for the youth teams of Ipswich Town, Southend United and Tottenham Hotspur and despite being a Spurs player he did not see any game action at senior level during his spell with the White Hart Lane outfit. The 185-cm-tall midfielder, though, was named as a substitute for Spurs in a 1-1 draw with Shakhstar Donetsk in the UEFA Cup back in 2009. Butcher played for the likes of Barnet (loan), Hjorring, Hayes & Yeading United, Dundee United and Burton Albion in the past before joining Millwall on August 25, 2016. He made his debut for the Lions two days after signing for the club, coming as a substitute in a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield. Butcher scored his first goal for Milwall against Northampton on October 15, 2016. It has to be noted that the midfielder scored two goals in 32 appearances for the Lions in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Norwich City):
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.
