Our football match prediction:
Wolverhampton have established themselves as main favourites to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. The Wolves have been producing splendid displays at the start of the season and, as a result, they sit in fourth place in the standings after five rounds. Coach Nuno Espirito Santo has a number of high-profile players to choose from and we predict that the hosts will start a new winning run in the Championship this weekend. Their rivals Millwall did well to crush Norwich City at home ground in their last league fixture, but it is well known that the capital club struggle on the travels and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. Summer signing Leo Bonatini, who has netted two goals in the Championship so far this season, will be the man to watch in the home team and the opposition defenders are likely to have their cut out for them when facing him.
Highlighted Player (John Ruddy):
John Ruddy is a goalkeeper who was born in St Ives, England on 24 October, 1986. He played for a number of English clubs in the past and he started his senior career at Cambridge United. After making 39 appearances for Cambridge, he signed a deal with Everton for a fee of £250,000. However, he failed to establish himself as the team’s first-choice shoot-stopper and as a result, he spent a bit part of his career on loan at Walsall, Rushden and Diamonds, Chester City, Stockport County, Wrexham, Bristol City, Crewe Alexandra and Motherwell. In 2010 he made a right decision when he signed for Norwich City for an undisclosed fee as he was immediately given the number 1 shirt. Two years later he received his first England call-up as Roy Hodgson decided to bring him to Euro 2012 finals. However, Ruddy was forced to withdraw from the squad through injury. John Ruddy is married to Laura and his nickname is “The Iceman”. He was named Norwich City Players’ Player of the Year for the 2011/2012 season.
Highlighted Team (Millwall):
Based in Bermonsdey, South East London, Millwall are a football club whose supporters have often been associated with hooliganism. West Ham United are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two teams. The Lions share rivalry with Charlton as well and the two teams first met back in 1921. The Den is Milwall’s home ground at the capacity of the stadium, which was opened in 1993, is 20.146. The capital club did well to make it to the 2003/2004 FA Cup final, but Premier League giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Lions. The Red Devils won the game 3-0, but despite suffering the heavy loss in the title game, Milwall booked their place in the UEFA Cup. However, Ferencvaros of Hungary proved to be a big catch for the English outfit in the two-legged tie. Australia international Tim Cahill is considered one of the most notable footballers who whore Millwall shirt (1998-2004).
