Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Plymouth, Millwall will look to climb to the top half of the table when they take on Hull City in the Championship round 11. The Lions have regained a much-needed confidence and they are surely capable of matching the Tigers at the Den. With no fresh injury concerns to report, boss Gary Rowett is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Pilgrims in midweek.
Hull City, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Ipswich Town and given their negative record at the Den, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. Even though there are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team, both Twine and Vinagre are pushing for a start as there should be changes to Hull City’s starting XI following the heavy defeat at Portman Road.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450.
Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
