Hull (A) Match Preview

After a fine win over Bristol City, the Royals continue their festive fixtures with a trip to Hull on Tuesday afternoon.

A full match preview is here..

Vital Quotes:

Brian McDermott on Shane Long -

'I trust him 100 per cent and more importantly the players do too. Now you're seeing what he's all about. It wasn't just the two goals, it was his all-round performance. He was first class. The fans are now looking at him and thinking 'we've got a real good player here.' I was so pleased with the reception he got at the end, it was fully deserved.'


Hull Team News:

Jimmy Bullard could return to the starting line up after coming off the bench to score the winner against Sheff Utd on Boxing day.

Former Royals Liam Rosenior and James Harper are expected to start.

Player to watch: Jay Simpson

Former arsenal striker had suffered a long goalscoring drought but has scored three goals in his last two games.

Reading Team News:

Brian McDermott could shuffle his pack with the likes of Brian Howard and Zurab Kizhanishvili looking for a start.

Shane Long will lead the line after four goals in two games.

Player to watch: Jimmy Kebe

Looked close to his best at times on boxing day against Bristol City and will look to continue that at Hull.

Last Meeting

Saturday 19th November 2005, Reading 3-1 Hull

Match Prediction:

I backed us to get 10 points over the festive period and that included a win here! 2-1 to the Royals!

Next Fixture:

New Years Day, Swansea (A)
