Reading vs Hull City Prediction

Hull City looked like surefire candidates for the drop a few weeks ago but a strong run of four consecutive victories has given them some breathing room. Reading's victory over the weekend also steered them clear of the drop but both sides need maximum points to put further distance between them and the chasing pack.

Reading have struggled on their own patch this season and are winless in 11 of their last 12 league games against Hull City. We are backing that trend to continue in an away victory for the Yorkshire side with goals at both ends.

Prediction: Reading 1-2 Hull City
