Hull vs Reading Match Preview
Hull will be looking to bounce from an opening day 2-1 defeat at Swansea having taken a third minute lead through Daniel Batty. The Humberside outfit can have few complaints as they were second best for the remainder of the fixture.
At the KC Stadium, the Tigers were strong last season winning 11 of their 23 played and only tasting defeat on six occasions. They conceded just 24 times in front of their own fans which gives them a top-third ranked home defence.
Reading will also be looking to bounce back from a disappointing opening day as they suffered a 3-1 home loss to Sheffield Wednesday. They can feel themselves unlucky as the expected goals data had them as narrowly the best team but all they had to show for it was a Yakou Meite goal.
Away from the Madejski Stadium, the Royals struggled last season winning just two of their 23 fixtures though they did draw 11 of those. An issue was lack of goals with just 20 netted from their time on the road.
Bookmakers make Hull narrow favourites to win the fixture and given their home form then that seems a reasonable bet. We like the Tigers to come out on top here as they have more firepower and did well at home last season. To get an extra bit of value take the home team to win the game and the game to have under 3.5 goals.
