Hull City vs Reading

Hull City look to add three points to their total this weekend when they welcome a struggling Reading side to the KCOM Stadium. The Tigers could still make a late push for the top six with them currently just six points below Aston Villa. Hull secured three points in their last match against Ipswich Town with a 2-0 win, which brought an end to their winless run of three games. Reading have done well to pull themselves free of the relegation zone, but with there being just four points between them they are far from safe. The Royals secured three points against Preston North End in their last fixture and are now unbeaten in their last two. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 17/20 and Bet365 has their opponents at 3/1.
