Hull City have been able to keep up the faint hopes of promotion alive with the recent win over Ipswich. The match against Reading might appear to be a tough game after José Gomes saw his team pick up a win over Preston, but away matches are not a speciality of the Royals. Reading have only managed a solitary victory in the last six games on their travels, while Hull have only failed to win two out of the last nine matches at home. Our preview would go with a win for Hull City.

Correct Score odds
Hull City have been able to come up with a spectacular home record in order to ramp up their position in the table.

Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Hull City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though Reading have not been great away from home, they have been able to score goals when needed and Hull City’s in the ability to keep even home clean sheets may be exposed quite badly in this match. There is a lot of pressure on Hull City, but their lack of clean sheets could result in over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jarrod Bowen has been able to open the scoring in his last six appearances at the KCOM Stadium. The 22-year-old is easily the top scorer at Hull City with 21 goals and he is in a position to challenge for the Golden Boot title. After scoring a brace in his last match at the KCOM Stadium, our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jarrod Bowen.
