Our football match prediction:
Following a morale-boosting win over Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton host Bristol City at their Molineux Stadium on day 23 of the new Championship campaign. The Wolves are eager to escape the danger zone, but seeing that they are just two points clear of their next rivals in the standings, a close encounter appears on the cards. Paul Lambert’s men suffered four defeats in last five home games in the league and they should be happy with one point from Monday’s football match. Bristol City, on the other hand, have been struggling in the Championship of late. The team suffered a loss in each of their previous three league fixtures and, no doubt, they are desperate to put an end to the negative trend. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to share the spoils at Molineux Stadium on Boxing Day.
Highligted Player (James Henry):
James Henry was born in Reading on 10 June, 1989, but he grew up in Woodley. He began playing football at his home-town club Woodley Saints, but he made progress during his spell at Reading’s youth academy. Henry is a winger who is capable of playing as a centre midfielder as well, but he failed to score for Reading in 10 league appearances for the club. After ending his loan spells with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Norwich City and Millwall, he signed a permanent deal with the Lions on 28 July, 2010. Henry signed a three-year deal with Millwall and he made his home debut in a 4-0 win over Hull City. It has to be noted that Henry played for both Scotland and England at youth level in the past, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. Henry was born in England, but his parents are Scottish and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Scotland.
Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby. Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909. The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
