Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Molineux Stadium when Wolverhampton and Fulham square off against each other on day 16 of the new Championship campaign. The Wolves are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League and they are leading the standings ahead of Friday’s football match against Fulham. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men suffered a 2-1 loss to Queens Park Rangers at the weekend, but they quickly returned to winning ways, with the team beating Norwich City at Carrow Road on Tuesday evening. Leo Bonatini scored his ninth goal of the season in the 2-0 win over the Canaries and the Brazilian attacker will be the man to watch in the home team against Fulham. The Cottagers have been struggling to find their best form in the first half of the season, they are on a four-game winless run in the league and we are not tempted to put our money on the capital club.
Highlighted Player (Ben Marshall):
Ben Marshall began his youth career at Manchester United back in 1997 at the age of six. The winger, who is capable of playing at right back as well, was born on 29 March 1991 and he signed for Stoke City on 8 July 2009. After spending three years on loan at Northampton Town, Cheltenham Town, Carlisle United and Sheffield Wednesday, he was sold to Leicester City on transfer deadline day (31 January 2012) for a fee of £750k. Marshall scored seven goals in 56 appearances for the King Power Stadium outfit and on 28 August 2013 he joined Blackburn Rovers. Marshall played 44 matches for Blackburn in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that he scored six goals for the Ewood Park outfit in all competitions. The winger made his debut for England U21 on 6 September against Azerbaijan. In the 2010/2011 season Ben Marshall won the Football League Trophy with Carlisle United and that is considered the biggest success of his career.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Championship. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition. Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight. Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League. The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
