Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Memorial Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Bristol Rovers and Hull City. Bristol Rovers aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town, and a triumph over Hull City would see them move a little closer to the playoffs berth. The attacking partnership of Hanland and Daly has been in a perfect working order of late, but the game against the Tigers will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team.
Hull aim to overtake Lincoln in top position, but keep in mind that Grant McCann’s troops suffered a 2-1 loss to Peterborough in their last league fixture. Given Bristol Rovers’ fine form, we do not believe that the Tigers are capable of picking up all three points from the midweek clash. Taking everything into account, share of spoils is on the cards, and the punters can definitely find value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Mark Little):
Mark Little is a right back who plays for Bristol City. Little started his youth career at Wolverhampton Wonderers and he made 27 appearances for the first team as well. He made his Wolves debut on 23 August, 2006 in the League Cup clash against Chesterfield.
After spending two years on loan at Northampton Town, Chesterfield and Peterborough United, he signed a permanent deal with Peterborough on 25 May, 2010. The defender scored three goals in 148 appearances for the ABAX Stadium outfit, but in 2014 turned down a new contract offer. Mark Little joined Bristol City on 1 July, 2014 and he has been playing for the Robins ever since.
The English footballer, who was born on 20 August, 1988 made 23 appearances for Bristol City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he scored one goal for the club. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as midfielder as well.
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.
