Our football match prediction:
Despite taking the lead in Saturday’s football game against Burton Albion, Wolverhampton eventually suffered a 2-1 loss to Burton Albion at Pirelli Stadium. The Wolves aim to bounce back from the defeat and in-form attacker Helder Costa is certainly capable of making life difficult for Newcastle United defenders. Wolverhampton are eager to escape the danger zone in the Championship standings, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash against the league leaders. The Magpies recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Derby County at the weekend, but the team’s performance in the triumph over Steve McClaren’s troops was anything but good. Newcastle United aim to cement top position in the standings and seeing that top scorer Dwight Gale could recover in time to face Wolves, we predict that Rafa Benitez’s men will extend their winning run in the English second tier. You should have in mind that Newcastle recorded three win in previous four away fixtures.
Highlighted 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 (Newcastle United):
Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354. Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past. David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club. Newcastle’s fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. The colour of Newcastle’s home kit is black and white.
