Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Hull City suffered elimination to Stevenage in the FA Cup at the weekend, but that is not bad news for the Tigers at all as they will be fully focused on the League One in the remainder of the season. Hull City are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Championship, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Doncaster on Matchday 15. Manager Grant McCann is likely to field the best possible side against the Donny after he rested several first-team regulars at the weekend.
Doncaster Rovers did well to beat Carlisle United in the FA Cup, with the team extending their unbeaten run to three games in all competitions. However, Hull City are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. A man to watch in the away team will be Benjamin Whiteman, who has been scoring goals for fun of late.
Highlighted Player (Callum Elder):
Callum Elder is an Australia international who plays for Hull City in the League One. Elder started his youth career at Manly United, but in 2011 he was spotted by Leicester City scouts. Despite being a Leicester City player from 2013 to 2019, he did not see any game action with the Foxes in the Premier League.
Callum Elder played for the likes of Mansfield Town, Peterborough United, Brentford, Barnsley, Wigan Athletic, and Ipswich Town before signing a three-year contract with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Speaking of his international career, the pacey left-back has one cap with the Australia U20 team.
Elder’s favourite position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a centre-back as well. Elder wears the No. 3 jersey at Hull City, and he is an athletic full-back who likes getting up and down the left-hand side. The Australian player was born on January 27, 1995.
