Reading vs Hull Prediction, Tips & Stats

Reading and Hull City will meet here at the Select Car Leasing Stadium with the two sides coming into this game off the back of losses each during the week that has 16th takes on 15th in the Championship.

Reading headed to Ewood Park last time out on Wednesday, as Cesare Casadei scored in the second half to equalise against Blackburn Rovers until a late winner from the home side. Mamadou Lorun was also sent off in the second half of the game and will now miss this one.

This has extended Reading's losing run to four games in the Championship where they have now let in nine goals and scored just one of their own in defeats to Boro, Sheffield United, Millwall and Blackburn.

Paul Ince remains under a lot of pressure ahead of this one and a defeat to Hull could spell the end for him in charge of the club. Ince's side have still managed to secure one more win in the league with 13 compared to Hull's 12, but in losing 19, only Huddersfield down in the relegation zone have lost more.

The Royals head into the game with 39 goals scored and 57 let in from 37 games with five other draws on the board. It does still keep Reading nine above the drop zone in the league and with no more games in hand to play for any side in the division.

As for Hull, they were beaten at home once again as Burnley ran out 3-1 winners at the MKM Stadium. Ozan Tufan came off the bench to score in the final minute of the game, and this defeat keeps the club down in 15th with hopes of a top half finish fading as the weeks go on.

Nevertheless, they sit two points above Reading in the table and come into this one with four fewer defeats on the board and 52 goals conceded and 42 scored. They have just one win on the board in March, however, as the Tigers beat West Bromwich Albion at home and drew Coventry City 1-1.

Reading team news

Reading have no new injuries ahead of this one. We expect Andy Carroll to start this one after missing the last outing.

Hull team news

Hull are no doubt going to make a few changes for this game here and will bring in Tobias Figueiredo into the starting XI after he missed the last outing. Ozan Tufan should also come into this one off the back of him starting on the bench in the last game. Jacob Greaves came into the game at half time against Burnley and he may start here, but Oscar Estupinian will no doubt start once more after missing the last game against Burnley. Ryan Longman is also now back in the squad and should feature here.
