Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Plough Lane will host Saturday’s football game between AFC Wimbledon and Hull City. The Dons showed character in the midweek clash against Gillingham, with talented midfielder Jack Rudoni scoring a late winner. AFC Wimbledon recorded their first home win since December 2, 2020, with the team escaping the relegation zone. The Dons are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but they face a difficult task in Saturday’s match.
The Tigers, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. Hull City have been producing fine displays on the road this season, and you should know that they are eyeing their ninth away win of the process. Since the Tigers are eager to regain their spot in top two, we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. In the first half of the season Hull City defeated AFC Wimbledon thanks to Lewis-Potter’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Nikola Tzanev):
Nikola Tzanev is a New Zealand goalkeeper who started his youth career at Crystal Palace. Tzanev then moved to Brentford and he continued wearing the red and white shirt at senior level. After ending his loan spell with Lewes, the 195-cm-tall shoot-stopper moved to AFC Wimbledon in 2017.
During the 2018/2019 campaign he played for Potters Bar Town as a loan player, but at the end of the season he returned to AFC Wimbledon. He made his League One debut with the Dons on August 3, 2019 in a 2-1 loss to Rotherham United. Speaking of his international career, Nik Tzanev made his New Zealand debut in a 1-0 win over Chinese Taipei on June 5, 2018.
The Dons goalkeeper has 3 caps for the New Zealand U20 team as well. Nikola Tzanev was born in Wellington on December 23, 1996 and his preferred foot is right.
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.
