Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Gillingham and Crewe, Hull City will be looking to keep their 100% record intact when they take on Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium. The Tigers lost several first-team regulars in the summer transfer window, but obviously did not prevent them from making a flying start to the season. Hull City are eyeing a quick return to the Championship, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from the EFL Cup defeat to Bristol City, with the team beating Shrewsbury on the road in the League One. Northampton aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but seeing that talented attacker Benny Ashley-Seal is likely to miss the game with injury, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Turnbull):
Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.
Despite signing a professional contract with Southampton, he did not see any game action with the Saints at senior level. The English footballer made no fewer than 86 league appearances for Swindon Town during his loan spell with the Robins, and in 2016 he signed a contract with Coventry City.
Jordan Turnbull spent the 2017/2018 on loan Partick Thistle before joining Northampton Town permanently. Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
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.
