Hull City vs Reading Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15.00) Championship fixture is an important game at the bottom of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Hull managed a road win at Blackburn last time out in the FA Cup Third Round with the game decided by an Ola Aina goal. In the league, they were last in action on New Year’s Day where they lost an important relegation battle 1-0 at Bolton. Reading managed to earn an FA Cup replay on the road to League Two side Stevenage in a game that ended 0-0. Their last Championship match came on January 2nd and saw them lose 2-0 at home to Birmingham. The reverse fixture between these sides in September at the Madejski ended in a 1-1 draw. Frazier Campbell had given the Tigers the lead in the 28th minute but the Royals rescued a point late on with a Jon Dadhi Bodhvarsson goal.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hull are the favourites to win the game but the price looks too short on a side who have won just four home games all season. I would not though be looking to be get with a Reading team who have won just four away games all season. Both sides have managed just two goals in their last five fixtures so saying NO in the both teams to score market looks value. In addition, individual bets on both sides to keep clean sheets could be of interest though at a much bigger price I think the Royals not to concede looks the better value.

Hull City Preview

Just two points from their four holiday fixtures and one victory in their last 12 has seen the Tigers fall deep into the relegation battle. They are in 21st but just remain out of the drop zone on goal-difference. At the KC Stadium, they have lost just one of their last five with three of these games ending all-square. 30 of the 39 goals they have netted this season have come in home matches and just nine on the road. Hull are averaging 3.19 goals per game this season though four of their last five have gone under 1.5 goals. In four of their last five in the league they have failed to find the back of the net and have scored just two times in these matches.

Hull City Team News

Will Keane (cruciate), Kami Grosicki (ankle), Stephen Kingsley (groin), Abel Hernandez (Achilles) and Ondrej Mazuch (hamstring) are doubts. Ryan Mason (skull fracture), Moses Odubajo and James Weir (both knee) are long-term absentees.

Reading Preview

It was an even bleaker holiday period for the Royals who took just one point from their four fixtures. They are without a win in six in the league and although they sit in 18th they are now just four points above the relegation zone. Away from the Madejski, they have had mixed results recently with two victories, two draws and two defeats in the last six. The Royals have netted just one goal in their last four on the road. Just one of the last five in all competitions and 11 of 26 in the league have seen Reading games go over 2.5 goals. Just eight of the 30 goals they have netted have come in the first-half with 60% coming in the final 30 minutes.

Reading Team News

Callum Harriott (hamstring) is closing in on a return while Jon Dahdi Bodhvarsson (illness), Joe Mendes, Sam Smith, Stephen Quinn (all knee) and Liam Moore (knock) are doubts. Jordan Obita is out for the remainder of the season with a cruciate ligament problem.
