These two sides would have started the season intent on securing promotion back to the Premier League, but their focus now has to be on remaining in the division, with relegation a very real possibility for both clubs.

A draw (27% chance) is probably not what either manager would be hoping for at the moment, but the fact that Hull have triumphed only once in 13 matches at this level, with Reading doing so just twice in 11 Championship games, suggests that they have each forgotten how to win.

Last season’s score

If there is to be a victor, then recent history certainly points towards the Tigers (38% chance), as they currently find themselves on a seven-match unbeaten run against the Royals, winning four of the previous five by a single-goal margin.

Given that both teams have scored (51% chance) in a staggering 16 of the last 20 Hull home games, it comes as no surprise to see that 1-1 (13% chance) is installed as the most likely scoreline by our KickOff predictive algorithm, though 2-1 (9% chance) is also in the mix.

Top betting tips and predictions

A positive outcome seems a lesser possibility, however, when you consider that ten of the most recent 15 Reading away games at this level have served up under 2.5 goals (54% chance), but Nigel Adkins will be keen to get one over on his former employers.

Eleven-goal Jarrod Bowen (11% chance) and seven-goal Modou Barrow (8% chance) are the leading marksmen for the two clubs, so they have to be contenders to open the scoring in this key clash at the KCOM Stadium.
