Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on KCOM Stadium when Hull City and Oxford United square off against each other in the League One round 36. The Tigers have been impressive in the League One ever since they suffered a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town, with the team recording a win in each of their previous four league fixtures. Hull City are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Championship, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Yellows. Brandon Fleming remains in the recovery room, while Martin Samuelsen will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Oxford United, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Swindon Town, and they managed to get one. However, the Yellows will have a mountain to climb in Saturday’s clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Hull City’s party at KCOM Stadium. Daniel Agyei should be recalled to Oxford’s starting XI after he found the net in the midweek victory.
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.
Highlighted Team (Oxford United):
Oxford United are one of the oldest clubs in the League One as they were founded back in 1893. However, Oxford United adopted their current name 67 years later and have been playing under it ever since.
Over the years the Yellows have built a great rivalry with Swindon Town and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two sides. Oxford United play home matches at Kassam Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 12,500. The stadium was built in 1997 and has been Oxford United’s home ground ever since. The Boys from Up the Hill are well known for their yellow and blue colours, but they play their away games in dark blue (with a little yellow) or black kits.
Oxford’s player with the most league appearances is John Shuker, playing 478 games for the club from 1962 to 1977. On the other hand, Jim Magilton is the club’s most capped player in internationals, playing 18 games for Northern Ireland.
