Footymad preview History of the Hull City v Reading fixture

Hull City prepare to entertain Reading at The KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 8 of the 23 previous games, with the The Tigers winning just 6.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The KC Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2010, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides

Hull City's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Tigers have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Reading's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. Just 6 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.

Hull City are currently lying in 19th place in npower Championship having mustered a points tally of 3 from their 4 matches played.

Reading see themselves just below half way in the npower Championship, showing a record of 4 points from their 4 games played so far,
