Our prediction for this League 1 match:
High-flying Hull City will be aiming to keep their 100% record intact in the 2020/21 League One season when they face Plymouth at their KCOM Stadium. The Tigers have been playing above expectations at the start of the season, and it is more than obvious that they aim to secure a quick return to the Championship. Talented winger Keane Lewis-Potter, who scored his second goal of the season in a 2-0 win over Northampton, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Given Hull City’s solid defence, home win should definitely be considered. The Pilgrims, on the other hand, are undefeated in the new League One season, but Hull City are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. The Tigers are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s match, and they are likely to extend their impressive winning run in the English third tier. Midfielder Lewis Macleod is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.

Romell Quioto is a pacey winger who plays for both Houston Dynamo and the Honduras national football team. Quioto was born in Balfate (Honduras) on August 9, 1991 and he played for Union Ajax during his youth career.

Romell Quioto then took a step forward in his career as he signed a contract with famous Honduras club Olimpia. After scoring 38 goals in 96 league fixtures for the capital club the 180-cm-tall attacker decided to taste MLS football.
Quioto moved to Houston Dynamo in December, 2016 and he has been playing for the Major League Soccer club ever since. Speaking of his international debut, Romell Quioto received his first call-up for Honduras on February 29, 2012 for a friendly game against Ecuador.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
