Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Hull City and Swindon Town take on each other at KCOM Stadium in what is expected to be a lively contest. The Tigers aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Accrington, and we are positive that they will go all-out attack in Saturday’s clash. Hull City have already recorded seven wins at home ground in the 2020/21 League One season, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Swindon.
Both Callum Jones and Martin Samuelsen missed the midweek game with injuries, and the duo is rated doubtful for the KCOM Stadium clash. The Robins, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Swindon, with the team extending their winless run to three games. Swindon have been struggling at the back of late, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Hull City’s party at KCOM Stadium.
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 (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
